The photo is genuine. It was taken from an article titled Shark Detectives in the September 2005 issue of Africa Geographic magazine and was taken by a group of researchers studying great white sharks off the coast of South Africa.

From the Shark Detectives article:
Sitting in a 3.8 metre sea kayak and watching a four-metre great white approach you is a fairly tense experience. Although we had extensively tested the shark’s reactions to an empty kayak and had observed no signs of aggression, this gave us little comfort as we eyed a great white heading straight for us, albeit slowly. Just a metre or so from the craft it veered off, circles and slowly approached from behind. It did this several times, occasionally lifting its head out of the water to get a better look. Then it lost interest, and as it continued on its way we were able to follow a short distance behind. Once we’d come to terms with having nothing between ourselves and a four-metre shark except a thin layer of plastic, our kayak made an ideal research platform for observing great white behavious in shallow water. Its advantages are twofold: it is inconspicuous and appears not to cause the sharks to alter their behaviour for long, and it allows us to watch them in a natural situation, as it is not necessary to attract them to us with food.

This photo was taken from the same sequence of photographs and appeared in the December 2005 issue of The Big Issue magazine.

Thanks for the information Viper. Didn't know about it. Was just thinking that we would have never known about this RESEARCH had shark known that how good the researchers would taste :roll: But than we owe our progress to such courageous people, indeed.
