This fearless man who balances on a whale shows us the extreme lengths dedicated researchers will go to get a really good picture.
Nature’s raw power was put on display when a 32-foot Bryde’s whale carcass fell victim to a brutal feeding frenzy by great white sharks.
Locals and tourists found the massive carcass resting ominously on the public beach in South Africa.
The reasons behind the death of this majestic Bryde’s whale remain shrouded in mystery.
The SA police, in a swift response, decided a tow out to sea was the next course of action - namely to "Seal Island."
Being teeming with seals, the island also attracts huge amounts of sharks that love feasting on them.
Amidst the chaos and terror, one researcher, armed with nothing but a camera, made a daring move - balancing on the whale.
No sooner had the whale carcass settled in the waters than the great white sharks, with an insatiable and terrifying hunger, set upon it.
Great White Sharks are capable of swimming speeds up to 15 miles per hour.
