I took this image in Isle of Coll,Scotland.Every summer there are some migration for basking sharks in Isle of Coll.The basking shark is second largest shark and this shark is one of plankton eater.For basking shark swim in Coll,we will try to find them around islands from morning.we will jump into the cold water(13 degrees) very quietly without disturbing sharks and swim toward to the way shark is heading to.During day time,Basking shark is eating plankton and jellyfish which floating surface.I was waiting to take this image until shark is close to me.
