This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
A stunning video has surfaced showing a large blue shark appearing to give a diver a kiss.
Photographer Steve Woods captured the moment off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa, where marine scientist Kevin Schmidt was leading an expedition, SWNS reports. Schmidt, who is an environmental consultant in the area, said the moment he was able to stare into the shark’s mouth, is something he will “treasure forever.”
“On this particular trip, we were located 34 kilometers southwest of Cape Point where we hovered in six meters of water for over an hour with four blue sharks and three mako sharks,” Schmidt said in comments obtained by SWNS. “Sharks, in general, are portrayed in such a negative light which does not reflect their true demeanor. Sensationalism portrays violence and power which overshadows the grace and beauty these creatures possess.”
“By ignoring “Hollywood instincts”, you can feel their presence in the water and it truly evokes the opposite of fear,” he continued. “Excitement, wonder, and curiosity- which is clearly mirrored by them in this picture. If you see a shark, consider yourself lucky and treasure the moment forever.”

A little blue kiss 😻 – Sharks are very inquisitive, the need to touch and feel with their mouths, especially due to their Electro-receptors that are located in little pits around their mouths. There is absolutely no aggression here, and you just understand what the shark is doing and keep your cool, then you might be lucky enough to get a little kiss if your name is Kevin (@illest_gillz ) #blueshark #blue #mako #shark #capepoint #photography #underwater #predator #wildlife #scuba #illgrammers #agameoftones #1dxmarkii #canon_official #marineconservation #keepitwild #stayandwander #lonelyplanet #passionpassport #theoutbound #explorewildly #finditliveit #adventuremobile #exploremore #bestvacations #natgeo #travelstoke #ikelitestrobes #wonderful_places #southafrica
