Great Hammerhead Shark

Photographing these Great Hammerhead Sharks off South Bimini was a first as we have discovered a new behavioral pattern in their feeding and have dispelled the myths of them being at the top of the apex predator list. The sharks are bottom feeders and were quite comfortable swimming amongst the divers and came so close that we were able to take the most breathtaking photographs imaginable. We were also able to snorkel down to the sharks and swim alongside them as they foraged on the seabed.
