This is one of my favorite shots from Hawaii.

For my birthday my parents paid for this little excursion to swim with the sharks. I put on a snorkel and rode in a boat 3 miles off shore, where the shark cage was. We then jumped in the cage and watched the sharks swim by.

This has to have been one of the most hectic things I have ever done. The waves crashing against the cage made it swing back and forth in the water. Plus it is a small space you have to share with six other people (2 on every side, they claim it is for safety so you do not get bit by a shark from behind).

These guys down in the water are Galapagos Sharks.

I have to add, this is something every human being needs to try at least once, these animals are amazing up close and in person.
