Shark feeding frenzy


Source: Yahoo News

One committed photographer spent a grand total of 3,000 dive hours trying to get the perfect shots, capturing beautiful images of a rare shark feeding frenzy. Laurent Ballesta’s images show the glimmering gray reef sharks hunting in swift packs, flying through the water and feasting on the likes of helpless grouper.

The challenge Laurent, 44, faced to get these images in Fakarava Atoll, French Polynesia, cannot be overstated: The grouper there spawn only once a year under a full moon, sometime in June or July, and only for around 30 minutes. In total, capturing the set of feeding frenzy images required 21 weeks of diving, day and night, spanning four years and 85,000 images.
