Reef sharks in the Maldives

Spent two wonderful weeks at Kuramathi in the Maldives in June 2012. Whilst there, we witnessed an amazing sight happening by the water villas. There were a number of Reef sharks patrolling up and down the shore through massive shoals of small fish. Here are a short series of photos from that day…

The sharks kept crossing over each other, I presume they were working together to drive the fish towards each other.

The below picture shows the wider view of where this happened, not such a terrible view. Kuramathi was an absolutely beautiful island and the views were truly spectacular.

Another close up of a reef shark hunting for these small fish. I assume they got what they were looking for as there were about 5 reef sharks and about 30,000 fish so the odds were most definitely in their favour.
