Every once in a while I get caught by images of certain aquatic wildlife. Those shots then will not let me go until I have taken my own images. It happened to me with the black manta's of the Socorros and it happened to me again with the great hammerheads of the Bahamas. It is something about the oddity of their appearance, but also about the way these sharks swim.. And so we went to the Bahamas in search of these majestic sharks to have our "Hammertime"-experience.
In March we did a trip to Florida and the Bahamas focusing on a diversity of marine wildlife. The list included manatees (in Crystal River), hammerheads, dolphins, caribbean reefsharks, nurse sharks, southern stingrays (all in the Bahamas) and whatever else would cross our path. The trip was pretty successful and we bagged many shots of a wide diversity of the animals. Above all we enjoyed the company of old and many new friends! So here's the first experience we had. The manatees of Crystal River.
