Three at a time

This photo was taken on the 7th of July 2010. We where off the west end of Cape Lookout N.C. The wind was north east at 15k. Spinner sharks where breaching in all directions and I was lucky enough to catch some of them out of the water. Two breached at the same time with a third joining them right at the end of there spin. The first two rotated four times. What a sight!
Black tip Spinner sharks have suffered population drops in the last twenty years. This activity was common in the 1980's. Not so much any more.
You may see the video of the sharks on youtube search 20100618101335.
