Rare Beauty
Photo By Jeff Milisen

  • Title: Rare Beauty
  • State/Province/Region: Hawaii
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Town: Kailua-Kona
  • Description: This oceanic white tip shark has a bad reputation as a tough customer partly because of its tendency to get overly friendly with divers. Encounters with these animals often involves a lot of bumping and pushing. Its large pectoral fins with distinctive white hashes can give one the impression that the animal is flying through the water like a slow moving aircraft. Unfortunately, in 50 years overfishing has brought this animal from the most abundant large animal on earth to an IUCN status of threatened.
  • Gear: Canon T1i, Tokina 10-17 mm lens, Ikelite Housing
