Meet Chainsaw the little 3.5m Great White. The lens make him look small but he's a feisty little bugger. Chainsaw has a huge chunk out of his head (unfortunately the other side from this pic) and really does look he's been in the wars.

Meet Bruce, the smiling 5m male great white. Bruce was one of 5 whites that circled us during the dive, making for a nerve racking ascent. Taken at 24m at the Neptune Islands, South Australia using a Nikon D700 16mm & 1.4x converter.
Runner Up - worthy of note but not a medal winner - an equal 4th place if you like! Runner Up 2011

Watching Great Whites in their natural environment (in this case down at 26 metres) is an incredible site. On this dive we had 5 GW's encircle us including this 4.5m male. Certainly made getting back to the surface interesting.

Surprise!! While sitting patiently watching a big Great White playing with some sea weed, this 4+m male GW scared the hell out of me as he snuck by for an ultra close pass. Evidently I don't taste good.
