Grey Nurse Sharks

UNDERWATER Subject – Winner 

It was a tricky situation for photography, as the vast school of Yellowtail Scad (Trachurus novaezelandiae) swarmed about in an unpredictable fashion. When the Grey Nurse Sharks (Carcharias taurus) swam into view, I only had time to take this single picture, before the fish engulfed the entire scene.
