This diver almost got sucked into the mouth of a massive whale shark as it feeds on plankton. But far from staring into the jaws of death – the shark, which are the  sea's largest fish, is actually vegetarian. The relieved diver escaped from the encounter unscathed and continued to  enjoy the presence of the incredibly docile animals. The stunning photograph, by Mauricio Handler, was taken during a feeding session where more than 600 of the huge creatures  gathered to feed on tuna spawn.
