Common Minke Whale


I know, I don't take photos of dead animals and fish but this one is just too special!
This is a Great White Shark!
And it is feeding on a dead Common Minke Whale.
We found the carcass in the open sea at Stellwagen Bank at Cape Cod.
The people on the boat with the underwater cameras are scientists that were trying to study the shark's behaviour during the feeding on the whale.
