Lemon Shark
Photographer: Jeffrey Haines
Location: Bimini Bahamas
Story: 
This lemon shark is inches from my camera! Although it is certainly thrilling to be so close to a large predator, I was not in any real danger. Sharks do not view humans as prey. Attacks that have occurred are examples of aberrant behavior or mistakes, not the normal behavior of these animals.
