Black Tipped Reef Shark @ P. Semakau by Kevin
edit: added this google maps thingy. p.s. click on the satellite pic to see it in full glory!
p.s. coords are inexact now...
WOW! i was like shark??!?!???
haha boy was I lucky to have eagled eyed companions for today's teamseagrass survey. Sharp eyed Robin also identified the black tip which I can only verify later from my shots.
albeit blur and small.. (darn I need an canon IS telephoto zoom!!!)
you can roughly see the shark in mid day!
we were going for a tour of P.Semakau after a tiring seagrass survey and fighting the mozzies on the trail back. Just when we thought that's all the island had to offer us for the day. Someone shouted 'Shark!'. The nice bus driver slowed down the bus and then eventually stopped. Everyone was in disbelief and denial and there were quite a few 'where got??' (add to the fact that we were kinda late for the boat) so nobody really wanted to leave the bus until Robin gave an inspiring shout of " Get off the bus to see clearly lah!"
hahah so that's how i got the shot.. ;p
