    Sadly, these days it can be rare to have four sharks in a frame, especially oceanic white tips. But at Cat Island, and thanks to the protection of sharks, and the banning of commercial long lining in the Bahamas, you can get to see these graceful predators in abundance. We had 11 at one time, while I was there in a research expedition to tag these sharks. We found many of the females were pregnant, and we hope the little ones survive and continue to rebuild these shark numbers.

    I like the composition, with one shark dramatically lit in the foreground (strobe below and sunlight above) and three other sharks in the background, caught in a cage of sunrays
