Oh my god I have always wanted to try that! I want to get my diving license and my dad said he was gonna get me some classes and then drive us up to Florida to take the test. I'm still only in high school, but I plan to move with my BFF after college. You are so lucky! Wish I could do that. No problem, and it's alright! Thanks for responding back :)

Wow, that's amazing! I'm interested into going into photography. Which lens/camera would YOU recommend for someone starting out?

Thank you so much! That's awesome! Photography is nice. Now, it's been a while since you asked, so I don't know if you already got the equipment, but I guess if you haven't, start with the less expensive, to see if you really do like it. I started my journey with the Canon EOS 30D which is a pretty decent dSLR and now it's pretty cheap. Otherwise, some of the smaller EOS version that are digital!

A wonderful photo, the angle at which you took it is particularly impressive. And just at that precise moment when you can almost *feel* the suction of water going into that huge mouth! Great work! What an experience swimming with this creature must have been!

Thank you so very much! it's one of the most exciting moments and one of the most sad moments I have done. It was way too focused on tourism to be good for the sharks, so that was sad! But to experience them was a dream come true! Sorry for the late reply!

Common consensus in the comments so far is that this cetacean is quite adorable, and I'm not gonna disagree, this fella looks pretty psyched about filter-feeding. If he can be psyched about filter-feeding, he can be psyched about ANYTHING.
