Deerhunter,

That is truly amazing! "WOW!" And as was mentioned, I am sure when you feed her when she is miles off shore! I think a lot of the shark attacks are certainly mistaken identity. But some of these charter services that take head boats out close to shore to entice the sharks are not doing anyone a favor! As a result sharks are killed when man has enticed them into thinkin people and boats mean food! They are an amazing powerful creature! Sharks are all around even though we do not realize it in the most suprising locations. In fact a Bull Shark was all the way up the Mississippi River a few years ago by La Claire, close to Danvenport Iowa where the "Pictures" on TV have their main shop. Who would ever think that?
. I could hardly believe it but they are very versatile creatures. Form the Salt Water of the Ocean to the Freshwater of the Mississippi over a thousand miles from the Ocean! But your pictures are amazing!

Thanks 03.

Oh, and use your weak hand!!!
Can't use the weak hand. I'm right handed, and left eye dominant. End of my rifle shooting days.

You have to consider that i used to live along the outer banks of NC, so swimming with or near sharks was commonplace for me in my teenage years. I used to catch 3 to 4 foot sand sharks bare handed in my early teens. to reach out and touch a shark that weighs as much as my wife's truck, and keep my hand, would be pretty high up there on my list. Did I know the risks then? Yes, and I still know them now. If i lost my hand petting a great white, at least it would be a cooler story than how I lost half of my left foot.
