Awe-Struck

I came across this "baby" Whale Shark of approximately 6 meters while diving at Richelieu Rock north of the Similans Islands (Andaman Sea) in Thailand. I jumped in the water unaware of what was beneath, on descent a mere 8 meters deep I turn and there it is cruising along. Absolutely breath-taking sight!!!!

Believe it or not, although classified as an endangered species, even these gentle giants have become the unwilling victims of shark finning.

Don't just look... Stop the Killing!
