This 20-foot long great white shark may look like it has made a spectacular kill but, astonishingly, no seals were hurt during the shooting of these stunning photographs.
The images were taken by shark expert Michael Rutzen, who used a dummy seal to attract the  beasts in the waters three miles from False Bay, near Cape Town.
The 40-year-old was able to capture the sharks leaping up to 13 feet out of the water, proving a valuable insight into how great whites hunt.
