🦈 Rowing With Sharks

Never mind catching crabs, how about catching a baby whale shark? This yawning fisherman stretches in open water near Cebu Island in the Philippines apparently oblivious to the baby whale shark coming up fast on his starboard. Bulgarian photographer Dimitar Karanikolov captures the terrifying moment with a drone mid yawn. “The whale-sharks swim in the area between 7am and 11am,” according to Karanikolov to feed on plankton and shrimp. “These are whale-shark babies. The adults are much bigger and grow up to 12 metres.” That’s a big fish and luckily a species not interested in single scullers like our sleepy fisherman.
