Dog Shark

The young boy caught a dog shark while fishing on Port Noarlunga jetty bridge , he was going to return to the water maybe because there is a restriction onto what size of fish to catch.  We are walking back to the shore when I saw the unusual fish he is holding and there is a guy taking photo of it, I'm not sure if his friend or stranger like me. When he is almost going to throw in the water I quickly stop him and ask favor that I'm going to take a quick shot because it's my first time to see that kind of creatures in the water. The boy was very good and kind to let me take the photo but shy enough at camera that's why I think he  is holding the dog shark tail up to cover his face..

    That was a good idea, asking the boy to pose with his catch for your camera. Very interesting photo.
