When you look at image of shark with mouth open you may think it's scary to be close to it during this moment. In fact it's quite opposite - when you have shark with mouth full coming at you it's much better than having one charging with mouth not occupied - for the simple reason that shark might look forward to fill it with something ! This shot was made when two bulls suddenly swam straight at me - and I can't tell that I was 100% comfortable during that moment ! ^_^
