Additional comments:
After being told by the local divers, who dive almost every day here that they haven't seen GSB for weeks and are gone for the winter, lucky us! It was more skittish than they normally are at this site when approached, it kind of took off toward shore but a couple of minutes later it returned to where we first saw it.
BTW - we also have incredible footage of a torpedo ray that was right next to the GSB. The torpedo ray even went into a "hypnotic" state when rubbed on its snout and flipped over on to its back for several minutes and at first we thought the GSB was going to eat it but then it left it alone.
