Close-up of a great white shark with blue iris  image

Old Blue Eyes

Did you know a great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) does not have a solid black eye? If you are close enough and in good light, you can see that they actually have a light blue iris. The sun happened to be hitting the shark’s eye in a manner that really accentuated the blue iris for this shot.
