Incredible photos: Great White shark leaps out of water to catch seal in its jaws
The dramatic moment a great white shark 'sealed' the fate of a sea animal was captured by a photographer.
Chris McLennan, from New Zealand, snapped the predator launching itself clear out of the water to snatch a seal.
The series of images was captured at Seal Island, off the coast of Cape Town in South Africa.
McLennan captured 28 shark breaches in a single hour.
The notorious shark infested waters is said to be one of the only places in the world where sharks breach when hunting their prey - the Cape fur seal.
Travel photographer Chris said: "The behaviour of the Great White sharks in this area is unique.
"I wanted to get the Holy Grail of shark images - the breach with a natural predation.
Chris used a decoy seal towed by a boat during the second day of his trip when there was a lull in activity.
He added: "The only way to get a photo of this live action is to spot the seals returning from offshore fishing and then focus on a lone seal or one that has dropped off the back of a group.
"By tracking just one seal, if you are lucky and the seal is not, you might get to see some action."
