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.'
