Dr. Hilary Moors-Murphy was conducting research on board the NOAA Research vessel Henry B. Bigelow and on June 14, they passed by a dead pilot whale off George’s Bank. And there was something else swimming around the pilot whale, thinking they’d hit the jackpot: a blue shark!

Check out her wicked photos below!
