Another shot of a lemon shark taken on a JASA trip. This one I cropped with photoshop, out of the general scene. The shadow now looks sharper.

Thanks Mads

The lemon sharks are such beautiful sharks, and.. good models too, especially at this location at Tiger Beach where there are so many

You would be surprised what you find in our canals apart from bicycles, still a lot of small fishes! Al

Hi Al,
Great shots ! I like the 2nd one too.

I love Zeeland! But here is another Lemon Shark, or Requin Citron in French, or Tiburon Limon in Spanish from the good old Bahama's

Hi Peter
I love Vinkeveen. Havent been there since a long time. Have you made some pictures of a pike ('snoek') for example? Try the wide angle lense and get as close as possible. The pike is pretty shy, I remember. Im am now more a favourite of warmer waters. Hope you dont mind I insert another lemon shark. The grassy bottom looks a bit like Vinkeveen, I guess.
Cheers Al
