Drone captures great white sharks circling oblivious surfers

A photographer with a drone captured great white sharks circling oblivious surfers in California. This is not the first time we have reported on shark sightings. The aerial perspective that a drone provides makes these predators much easier to spot than from the beach or water, as is the case in this example as well. The surfers only seem to realize at the very end that they had company.

Makes you wonder why beaches don't hire commercial drone operator to do "shark patrols". If I wasn't land locked in central Texas, I'd go to a beach community and make an offer.

Wow! sends shivers down your spine. Australia is notorious for great white sharks. One of our local beaches in South Australia was a popular spot for what was reported to have been one of the worlds largest white pointers until its sudden death by drowning when caught in a fishing net. It was near enough to 30 feet long, 15 feet around the girth with a dorsal fin over 4 feet high. The attachment is a photo of the jaws which were sold in the USA.
