It might look like a scene from Jaws but these stunning images show two divers getting up close and personal with a whale shark.

Taken by photographer Debbie Wallace, the images show two divers circling around the shark with its mouth open of the coast of Tubbataha, Phillipines.

In one shot it looks like the divers are even about to get swallowed up.

She said: “In a couple of the photos, I was photographing a huge school of barracudas when I panned to my left to find this gorgeous juvenile female whale shark about to enter the school.

“As she was entering, the school of barracudas parted to allow her passage.

“Tubbataha is a magical place and is basically a wide angle heaven for photographers.”
