Jaws-ome photos of great white shark as it launches itself out of water at seal

In a clear breach of polite manners the fearsome creature launches himself clean out the water with his mouth full

The ocean is one giant buffet when you?re a great white shark, and this unfortunate seal has just found out that he is lunch.

In a clear breach of polite manners the fearsome creature launches himself clean out the water with his mouth full.

But he can?t have been surprised to find his Cape fur seal prey off the appropriately-named Seal Island near Cape Town.

Kiwi photographer Chris McLennan captured the ?Holy Grail of shark images?.

He said: "Anyone who has photographed wildlife will know sightings of this type of behaviour are still rare to witness and more difficult to catch on camera.

"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.?
