Spiral

I remember this dive like it was yesterday. I descended down, over the top of this beautiful hammerhead and she accepted me even though I was close to a particularly vulnerable spot, directly above her. Great hammerheads are certainly one of the boldest sharks I've been fortunate enough to dive with and this beauty, known to us as Medusa, is certainly full of personality every time we meet.
