Whale shark cover shot, Dive Magazine UK

I have the cover image on this month's [Dive Magazine](http://www.divemagazine.co.uk/) (March 2011 issue), which features whale sharks, manta rays, tiger sharks, and humpback whales.

The image features a friendly, 13-meter-long whale shark near Darwin's Arch in the Galapagos Islands. We surfaced from a dive to find the gigantic fish rubbing her back against our small dive skiff. She then proceeded to swim directly at the divers in our group—one after another—and even made contact with our dive guide, who was unable to get out of the way quickly enough!
