    A lemon shark pup uses the tangle of mangrove roots for protection for the first 5-8 years of her life. The mangroves also provide habitat for lemon sharks food - small fishes. This place on Eleuthera, Bahamas is almost untouched. The sharks can live out their lives in peace, for now.

    Great photo of a predator in its environment. The perspective is great and the reflection of the bottom and the fish on the surface make it look like an abstract painting.
