Fantastic photography!

Tennyson spoke of "Nature, red in tooth and claw".

If you want to see that in reality, there's an absolutely fascinating set of photographs of sharks taking seals in False Bay, South Africa.

People, these pictures are incredible! I've crossed False Bay by boat and ship many times, and seen the sharks hunting the seals for myself: but the sheer clarity and stop-action detail of these shots amazes me. They're a must-see.

Head on over to the London Telegraph and see for yourself.

You know, I think if we could get representatives from the seals and the sharks to sit at a table together and have a dialogue, they could come to some sort of understanding of why the sharks hate the seals, and what the seals can do to stop compelling the sharks to eat them.
