Feeding time

Every day, at 5pm, Roland strolls to the end of his jetty, a bag full of irresistible bait in his hand.

I of course couldn't resist getting into the water for a closer look below the waves...

You can see & read more about whale watching and shark diving in French Polynesia on my other virtual dive site.
