The moment when my wife stopped participating in my photo shoots. Out in Turks and Caicos on the most beautiful water in the middle of nowhere on the far east side of Middle Caicos on Wild Cow Run. "Let's get the drone out and get some overhead shots!" Everything was going great aside from the birds attacking the drone. Now the glare was pretty bad on my phone screen but when you see a black blob swim into the frame your heart drops a bit. Should I scream? Dive in and save the day? Ummm, no just keep filming... Kidding...Natalie saw it right away too and made an Olympic speed record to the side but not before I got a couple shots without really even knowing it. But the shark veered off regardless. Now after, we realized this was a harmless Nurse shark but we're from Texas and yes it freaked us out.

Great shot, Awesome story !
I'm sure the wife had some choice words when she got safely ashore.
That's why these trips are called "Photographic Adventures", Honey, right?
Glad everyone is OK
Many more photographic adventures to you, maybe not as heart-stopping though. :)

I think I would have died on the spot. Luckily it was a friendly shark. Unique shot for sure!
