Perfectly Timed Photos of Great White Sharks in Mid-Air


Award winning travel photographer Chris McLennan has captured some spectacular photographs of great white sharks breaching.

The waters surrounding Seal Island, in False Bay, South Africa, is the only place on earth where great whites breach while hunting. The water there is filled with baby seals and the sharks have learned to attack the seals from below, travelling at very fast speeds which causes them to propel out of the water during the attack.
