Say cheese! These camera-loving sharks’ smiles are all teeth
These sharks are all smiles for the underwater cameras – flashing their teeth to the amusement of divers.
The inquisitive school were caught on camera in the waters off Tiger Beach in the Bahamas.
Luckily, there were no Jaws horror scene moments – despite tiger sharks having the reputation for being an aggressive species.
Instead, one shark can be seen trying to have a feel of the camera in the blue waters while another enjoys a belly rub and third glides lazily along – making for some beautiful underwater shots.
Dave Baker, from St Neots, Cambs, is a London black cab driver but has a strong passion for underwater photography.
He said: “I’d had many encounters with sharks while diving, but always at a distance and they always disappeared pretty quick once they saw you.
“This was a great trip and a real eye opener into the behaviour of sharks.
“Because of films such as Jaws and headlines about killer man-eating sharks, they really do suffer a bad reputation.
“To see them like this and be able to show others that they are far from the image portrayed was a real privilege.”
