    Holy Toledo, what a capture!!!! Love the flying spray. I can't imagine they breach terribly often, and that when they do someone has a camera ready, so this is somewhat of a 'rare' shot. Well done!

    Most excellent! These opportunities do not come along often, and even less often having a camera ready. Lovely shot!

    I believe what they do now is drag a decoy behind the boat. The sharks mistake the decoy for a seal and attack. So while they may not know when the shark will breach, they would have a pretty good idea where it will happen.

    Still, it's a great shot and not easy to capture.. Well done.

    Wow, amazing. I really like the fact that the shark is faced right toward the camera.

    Hey thats my part of the world! It's one of those funnies that they only hunt like that in this part of the world - weird!

    So where about in SA was this? Cape Town - Gordons Bay?

    Oh, and excellent capture!
