Diving with Nurse Sharks

Sharks are impressive predators, powerful and elegant as they swim.  Swimming next to them this past week made me realize how truly amazing & magical marine life is.  Every specie I got to see, moved in its own rhythm.

Sharks also play a role in maintaining biodiversity in the ocean, by preventing explosion of single species that might cause other species to die out.

Many species of sharks have declined rapidly over the last few decades, some declining by more than 80% in 20 years due to overfishing. Unlike other fish, sharks are particularly vulnerable to exploitation because they grow slowly, mature late in life, and reproduce infrequently, giving birth to only a few pups each time.

Anyway, just wanted to share this photo with you guys.  Hope you like it.
