Silky Sharks - Carcharhinus falciformis

Another test video, just testing a few things before I decide if I'm going to open up for this option for the rest of the members.

A video I filmed with my digital camera this summer during a Liveaboard in the southern Red Sea
Two 2m long Silky Sharks where circling around us for about 10 minutes and got really close a few times (1-2 meters).
20 minutes after I shot this video a 5-6 meters long whaleshark appeared and a thresher shark right after that again...
The previous dive we had 5-6 Hammerhead sharks around us, so it was a pretty good day.

The silky shark (Carcharhinus falciformis) is a species of requiem shark, family Carcharhinidae, named for the smooth texture of its skin. It is one of the most abundant sharks in the pelagic zone, and can be found around the world in tropical waters. Highly mobile and migratory, this shark is most often found over the edge of the continental shelf down to a depth of 50 m (164 ft).
