View from Above

A male white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) swims below through the rays of sunlight beaming down from above. The smaller fish in the image are mackerel scad (Decapterus macarellus), which are abundant around the island. The mackerel are not a natural food item for white sharks, so they are often seen swimming close-by the sharks.
