In this incredible GoPro capture by Amanda Brewer, we get up close and personal with a female Great White Shark off the coast of Seal Island in Mossel Bay, South Africa. Brewer, who is an elementary school art teacher, snapped the photo this summer while interning at White Shark Africa, an eco-tourism and animal conservation organization.
In an interview with Time, Brewer explains:
“I wasn’t even a little bit frightened. When you’re there and you’re in their presence, it’s not scary. They’re beautiful and graceful, and you can see how intelligent they are.”
The incredible photo was recently featured as GoPro’s Photo of the Day.
