Power meets agility

Q: What’s the story behind this photo?

A: I was at Guadalupe Island to observe great white sharks in their natural state. We stayed three days in cages without baiting. During a dive, a sea lion that lives on the coast of Guadalupe came swimming above us. I started to photograph it, [then] saw the shark that came from my left. The two animals came face-to-face and I realized this photo. At the ultimate moment, everyone thinks that the sea lion is attacked and eaten by the shark. However, the opposite happens because sea lions will play for 15 minutes with its predator, biting its fins and tail. The adult sea lion is too fast to be worried by the great white shark.”
