"A tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvieri) inspects my camera as I lie on the reef. Before we started surface drift-diving to film tiger sharks, we spent a lot of time near a small cave where we could remain for hours on end, sheltered from the prevailing current, waiting for sharks to arrive. During this time the passing manta rays, dolphins, and turtles helped to keep me entertained."
