Great White Shark Breaching Carcharodon carcharias Seal Island False Bay South Africa Information from photographerSeal Island is the only place in the world where the sharks regularly breach out of the water to attack their prey seals Natural predation is very difficult to photograph as you dont know where it will occur and as most breaches last for less than one second it is virtually impossible to shoot Therefore a decoy seal made of neoprene is trailed from the back of a boat although this can only be done or times as one does not want the sharks to figure out that it is not a real seal As a photographer you have to sit or lie at the back of the boat and wait for the shark to hit the decoy this is harder than it sounds as the sea is often rough and you could tow for a long time without getting a knock as they say in South Africa If you take your camera from your face for one second you could miss it
