About it writes the edition Hyser.
Impressive the managed to make 26-year-old Australian diver Luke That. The case was presented to him near the Neptune Islands. Along with a group of friends Hatch went on the boat as they approached the crest of a great white shark, also known as the shark-eater.
A desperate guy is not chickened out and decided to take a picture of a predator from the very short distance that was available.
“I came across pictures of Andrew Fox, who makes incredible shots of a great white shark. So I decided to try to photograph it on a camera with fish-eye (a type of wide-angle lens — approx. lane) when she came to us as close as possible”, — said Luke.
Photos really came out fantastic. The camera lens got sharp-toothed muzzle of a 5-metre monster is almost finished poster for the movie “Jaws”.
Some pictures show how close Luke got to the shark with his camera.
By Luc called their actions “a rather typical reaction,” and also spoke out in defense of marine predators. “Sharks are incredible animals, they need our protection and minimal anthropogenic impact”, — he stressed.
Now great white sharks is on the verge of extinction on Earth there are only about 3,500 individuals. And although the blockbuster Steven Spielberg depicted this predator is a ferocious man-eater, in reality, he prefers a more available food: mainly feeds on fish, mollusks, snails, dolphins, seals, sea turtles, birds, other sharks.
However, for humans the white shark still poses a risk. From 1990 to 2011 were registered 139 cases of white shark attacks on humans, 29 of which were fatal.
On the South coast of Australia is widely distributed so-called “shark tourism”: people are put in a special cell, which launched and instructors to lure predators with small pieces of fish. The company organizes these rides are often accused of provocation of attacks of sharks on people. However those in the answer indicate that the odds of dying from a lightning strike is higher than to suffer a shark attack.
Recall that a shark attacked women directly at the coast: details and photo effects.
