...Half a Dozen of Another.

"He captured a total of six images of the great white shark breaching, he said. He attributed the once-in-a-lifetime shot to a combination of luck and his 400 millimeter telephoto lens..."

I suppose one could parse that to mean only one of the six images was "the once-in-a-lifetime shot," but it still reads funny. Regardless, this is an amazing picture. And who knew sharks breach? I didn't.

It almost looks like that creature is sharing the surfer's joy, doesn't it? I love images like this because no amount of money nor power can make them happen, nor make any difference to how they make us feel. Rich or poor, monarch or serf, the waves, the sky, a shark and man are just as exhilarating to each of us, all the same way.
