This rather chilling pic shows what happened when marine biologist Trey Snow went out to observe great white sharks in a tiny inflatable kayak. A 4-meter shark is shown pulling up behind the frail craft of the man, showing that the observer, in the wild, is often the observed. In this case, the shark opted not to bite the strange object, so fortunately this column is not an obituary. I salute all those willing to take risks to get something accomplished for science and conservation.
