Feeding the whale sharks

Ok, this is a picture with a bit of a story behind it. The first times we went to the whale sharks the guys at the ahe resort told us that it was possible to feed the whale sharks.. we thought.. hmmm.. they made their point during this session… it is possible to feed them. To avoid harassment we don’t continue with this practice, but for all to share here is a picture from this remarkable moment.
