This is the moment when a shark appears to pose for a selfie with a diver and smile the same giant smile.
36-year-old William Drumm recently clicked on the perfectly timed shot 20 miles off the coast of Isla Mujeres in Mexico.
Whale sharks often swim with their mouths open and William thought it would be a good shot to imitate them.
After a few tries, he managed to get the perfect image. The Coloradans explained that whale sharks are “so amazing.” The largest sharks on the planet “often swim with their mouths open as they filter tiny plankton from the water.”
In Instagram He explained that there were “millions of fish eggs in the water, which is probably what attracts all these sharks each year.
“A whale shark can consume 30,000 calories or more per day, feeding on some of the smallest prey imaginable!”
“They swim pretty fast so it took me a few tries, but I think I got some images that worked.
“I was very excited and honored to share the water with so many of these beautiful giants.
“I have never seen so many whale sharks, at least 100 in a single day.”
