One more shark photo, before heading back to sea for another week. I can look at and photograph these sharks all day. Just cruising the reef, moving effortlessly into the strong current and gliding. Definitely not being the killers they are perceived to be by the masses. How can so many hate such a beautiful creature. Wouldn’t you love to give this one a hug? . . . . #amazingwildlife #oceanlife #anemonefish #savethereef #divingmagazine #ig_fotoclub #turningthetide #underwaterlife #uwphptography #marinelife #saveouroceans #bg_underwater #queensland #oceanx #sealegacy #thisisqueensland #paditv #spoilsportlive #oceans #ospreyreef #plasticocean #savethesharks #sharkreef #ilovesharks #sharks #sharkaddicts #sharkdive

Osprey Reef just never fails to satisfy that constant hunt for colour underwater and large bitey marine life to capture. Hanging around the Western Wall at North Horn sometimes produces them both together. You never know what you will see here. It’s an anything goes kind of place. Over the years I have seen whale sharks, mantas, beaked whales, false killer whales, dolphins, hammerhead sharks, thresher sharks, rhinoplas, hot pink leafy scorpion fish, potato cods, Queensland groupers, tiger sharks, dog tooth tuna, sailfish, nudibranchs of every colour........ so many more things........ It’s just so good. Happy to show you some of it’s treats. What else would you like to see? . . . . #underwaterlife #uwphptography #marinelife #saveouroceans #bg_underwater #underwatermagazine #underwaterlicious #clearoceanpact #oceanlife #theoceanagency #lonelyplanet #aussiephotos #divepix #underwaterphotography #underwaterworld #queensland #canon1dxmarkii #nauticam #nauticamwacp #greatbarrierreef #australia #savethereef #stopadani #bliss #ospreyreef #thecoralsea #sharks #rainbowwall #rainbowcolour #colourinyourlife

Sharks capture the imagination of everyone in some kind of a way. Whether it is hate or whether it is love. People dream of sharks, whether they are swimming calmly with them underwater or being mauled alive at the surface in a gruesome end. One thing that is certain, is the way each person perceives sharks is very different from the next. Unfortunately the majority of people just hate, because they just don’t understand anything about them apart from a movie they once saw. “Shark” is a word that arouses a response in people like no other word. Education is the key to turning people’s perception from hate to respect. Then taking the step to spend time in the ocean with them, leads to a complete moment of bliss. I love how people react to even seeing the smallest shark underwater. But I realise more and more that they feel lucky. And this makes me think that 20 years ago we would have expected to see a shark underwater, now we feel lucky if we do. And there lies the answer, as to how fast our oceans are changing from right underneath us. #divepix #wonderfulglobe #und#underwatermagazine #underwaterlicious #clearoceanpact turningthetide #spoilsportlive #australiagram #underwaterworld #greatbarrierreef #365ocean #saveourseas #oceanarmor #underwater #divetrips #ospreyreef #blueplanet #savethegreatbarrierreef #savethereef #oceans #lovethereef #nauticam #canon1dxmarkii #ilovesharks #shark #savethesharks #bg_underwater #bliss

This lovely green humpback scorpion fish (also known as a false stonefish) looks like he’s had a bad face painting session at a 5 year olds birthday party. I haven’t seen too many of these (of this colour) since Cyclone Yasi, but diving with @bridgettegower in The Coral Sea a few weeks ago, I was so delighted when she pointed out this one. He was such a poser. What a great find. Do you think we should call it Jade (Short for Jaded 🤣🤣🤣)? #ospreyreef #thecoralsea #underwaterphotography #scubadive #uwphoto #critterdive #exploreocean #underwaterlife #marinelife #canon1dxmarkii #nau#nauticamwacp #wacpnauticam #nauticam #queensland #oceanx
