Shark Details

This shark was feeding off Port St Mary Ledges. A group of kayakers were with it AND a pod of at least 6 dolphins was behind the shark, further out to sea! I observed them through binoculars from 1.4km away so I have no size estimate and my pictures aren't brilliant. If we're lucky we may get some good photos from the kayakers.
