I really like the picture, or at least the concept.The sharks upper tail lobe is longer than what a great white has compared to the lower. (Still a neat picture)

Go to the link it's not going to attack it's just curious. the photographer was on a boat taking pics of the person while kayaking around the sharks. They are both trained marine bioligists and know what to do if a shark did attack. But they say on the site that great white sharks do not attack kayaks.

I heard that the biologist in the kayak somehow did something to make the shark a sort of pet...of sorts...so it would follow him whenever he came out on the water.

The Great White looks so curious but yet graceful. That is a great shot how lucky.

Sorry but I could see straight away this is fake. I work a lot with photo's in my spare time, and blending together photo's to make panoramas is something I've become quite accomplished at. Look carefully at the horizon. It is uneven in three places, and the ripples between the shark and kayak are disjointed. The sky looks like an amateur blending job too. I can actually see the line between the two photos running right down it!
