This was one of the few images I could capture of whitetip reef sharks during the day over 7 days of diving at Cocos Island. The whitetips were plentiful, but were somewhat skittish, and often didn't allow me to get close enough for a good picture. This was in stark contrast to their behavior during their nightly feedings, where the whitetips would often bump into us as they were searching for food.
