Shark Cruises Close to Shore Off Bowman's Beach at Sanibel Island, Florida

Shark of Bowman Beach at Sanibel Island by Laitham Haddad
Laitham Haddad reached out to us the other day via Facebook to let us know about an impressive shark video that he took off Bowman's Beach at Sanibel Island, Florida. The video is about a minute long and shows a fairly good sized shark swimming very close to shore as the sun sets in the background. 

Laitham wasn't a 100% sure what type of shark it was but he believes it was a bull shark.

In August 2013, a 17-year-old was bitten by a shark while fishing from a sandbar at Sanibel Island.

We shared Laitham's video on our FB page and apparently so did hundreds of others because as this morning, it has been shared on FB over 2,000 times and has nearly 300 comments. By anyone's metric, that's impressive.

Laitham's photography page, Two Eyes One Image Photography, showcases a lot of his work and he does offer his photography for sale.
