Photographer Sean Scott was lucky enough to be at the Red Bluff camping grounds when the sharks gathered near the coastline to feed on a school of baitfish.

"Watching these beautiful sharks flourish in their natural environment was a privilege to see," he told Diimex. "What really impressed me was how people and the sharks were co-existing side by side."

"There were people diving and surfing very close to this event and the sharks showed no interest in them and were happy concentrating on the bait ball.""What I saw really emphasised just how special the WA coastline is with such a flourishing healthy marine life."
