Whale Shark Grace

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Heidi Connal

Huge, beautiful, graceful whale sharks roam the surface of the water to feed on bonito eggs and plankton. Everywhere we turned, another dark shadow would emerge from the deep blue water to slowly approach and then carefully shift, ensuring inches of room for us and for each other.

Location: Isla Mujeres, Mexico
