Hi Folks

Just flew back to Vancouver on Sunday. Did 2 amazing weeks of diving in the Philippines. 1 week in Moalboal, 1 week + 1 day in Anilao. Wasn't all that enthused by the diving in Moalboal, reefs were so so, but we did see a whale shark at Pescador Island and at Oslob. We figure the shark at Pescador was an Oslob graduate as it knew to approach boats looking for food. While sad to see that this magnificent animal was going around looking for food, the fishermen and dive operators were there to hopefully protect this wonderful creature. When we did go to Oslob, there were 6-7 sharks in the bay. 3 Sharks left the main group of feeders and proceeded to give the group of 20 or so divers the show of our lives! No krill for bait, but a full hour of them just swimming back and forth and observing these strange bubble blowers with their 1 big eye... ;-). Hope you like the images...

Very nice work! I really like the monochrome treatment, somehow it suits these beasts. And I am amazed at the vis, so much better than Donsol during the whale shark season there. Thanks for posting your shots
