Photographer Dana Allen waited three days and used a dummy seal to get the perfect shot of a great white shark off the coast of South Africa. Pretty awesome.
From the New York Daily News:
“The strike, when it happens, takes just over a second, up and out and back into the water,” he explained, according to Cater News. “If you flinch you can miss it.”Photo credit: Dana Allen/Caters News Agency
At one point, just as his team was settled in, they heard a crash.
“In an instant the four-meter (13-foot) great white shark was up and out of the water, right in front of our eyes,” Allen said. “The water was streaming off its body and I pressed my trigger button.”
