Alex Mustard - Shark World


An oceanic whitetip shark (Carcharhinus longimanus) is accompanied by a large group of pilotfish (pilot fish: Naucrates doctor) loom very close to the camera. Pilot fish live a bizarre life, accompanying the large beasties of the big blue. To a pilot fish, the shark must seem like their entire world. Some oceanic sharks have lots, others none at all. As a photographer you always try and find a shark with lots of bling (pilot fish).
