Bait and Switch

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.”
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.”
