This shot was taken through the plexiglass tank at the Shark Reef exhibit within the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. By shooting through the plexiglass, I was able to align the waterline with the lens and get the perfect angle and reflection. This is one of my favorite photos, simply because of the abstract reflection and subject. Sometimes it takes my friends several guesses at what exactly they are looking at...and in this case ... a White Crocodile.
