In between shooting still photography and hanging on for dear life in the surge and currents, we managed to get in a bit of practice with Merry's new GoPro.
Warning; Contains brief scenes of White Tip shark sexual encounters.

Cool. Interesting bottom and some not ideal vis. Quite unlike most places I've dove. The white-tips never bothered me. The gray reef sharks did. And lizards that can hold their breath and swim. Weird!

Thanks for sharing. Cool

The white-tip reefs sharks are pretty much harmless and not aggressive. I traveled and dove down in Kwajalein yearly (for work) and they were everywhere. Their behavior only changed if food was involved such as spearfishing. Even then, they were more interested in stealing an easy meal than attacking humans. They were generally docile and we got so used to them, they were literally ignored. Now the gray reefs are a whole, different thing.
