Cave sharks

Napping sharks

As soon as we dropped down in some choppy water off Daphne, Galapagos Islands, we found this cave with three resting white tip reef sharks. Absolutely arresting.

The photo is black and white because in addition to shooting blind, I was in low-light, so the colors don’t reproduce so well.

White tip out for a swim

Shark food

A prowling whitetip reef shark out for swim (and maybe a meal) off North Seymour in the Galapagos Islands. Several of these guys were visible on a dive one afternoon. They typically spend their daytime hours resting on shady bottoms or in caves (see below). Most hunting is then done at night.
