A Great White Shark Takes a Seal, False Bay, South Africa
Photo by William Buchheit
William Buchheit was lucky to capture this classic photo of a great white shark hunting seals in South Africa. It took the photographer days to witness an attack close enough to take a picture. But after three days of patience, Buchheit was finally presented with the perfect moment.
"I clicked off 20 frames in about three seconds, the gasps of my crewmates audible over the machine-gun shutter of my camera," Buchheit said, aiming his camera from a distance aboard a boat.
