Another “shark” photo … ok, strictly speaking not a “shark”, but close enough 🙂

These six eagle rays were cruising through a channel at Gam, Rajah Ampat, at about 10m of water. I had to swim perpendicular into the strong current to get the middle of the channel, and just in front of the school. Then, I had to face into the current (so that the rays were in front of me) and just went along with the flow of the current, to get this shot. Water wasn’t very clear – we were plagued by sedimented waters throughout our 10-day stay there.
