susan62susan62 A a great white shark leaps out of the water clutching a decoy seal in its jaws. The picture of the shark hovering in mid-air above the water was taken by Dana Allen in False Bay, off Cape Town in South Africa. Dana's team spent three days trying to set up the shot by using a rubber 'decoy' seal to tempt the sharks out. He said: 'The strike, when it happens, takes just over a second, up and out and back into the water. If you flinch, you can miss it. We were getting ourselves settled, preparing for a long wait and then whoosh! In an instant the four metre great white shark was up and out of the water, right in front of our eyes. The water was streaming off its body and I pressed my trigger button. It almost seemed like slow motion and I remember seeing the eyes and the teeth as the shark leapt up.'

DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge Comfort plus cuteness makes for a winning combo, so punch up your look with a poncho! Create a fresh look by reinventing a classic piece and stay cozy with this nouveau hoodie overhaul.To create, make a cut from the side seam of the sweatshirt body as well as each side of the inner-arm. Open up the neckline with a crew neck cut-out. Be sure to cut ONLY the top layer so you don’t loose the hood. Close up the back by pinning large safety pins (or feel free to sew) across your new open seam. Cut the bottom sides (both front and back) into a curved shape, keeping the back a bit longer than the front. Secure the sleeve to the torso, which creates a poncho silhouette. Use large safety pins and pin approximately halfway down the bodice. For the armhole, attach buttons on the top and bottom front sections. Use any button you like and attach with safety pins or sew. Use the same buttons to add accents to the shoulder seam.
