Man you were close - very close!!!! 15mm. I don't think I would want to this without being in a cage.

Yes, I was close, but Underwater there is a little magnification factor.  Also, by and large, sharks are not interested in people.  If they were, no ocean would be safe to enter at any time.  World-wide, unprovoked attacks run around 100 per year, often on surfers on boards (obviously ANY attack is likely to result in serious injury).  Out at sea, at depth, people don't look like seals, and the attacks on divers are extremely rare.

I can recall being afraid the first time I saw a shark.  Now I'm disappointed if I don't.  It is a real rush, trust me.  They are beautiful and extremely sophisticated animals -- perfectly evolved over millions of years.
