Whale shark, Rhincodon typus
In remote West Papua a whale shark feeds. I positioned myself to capture the sun beams and waited for the whale shark to swim below. The whale shark is the largest living fish, listed as vulnerable and threatened by the shark-finning industry, vessel strike and as by-catch in net fishing.
