In the middle of a huge school of fish, a surfer sits on his board. These pictures were captured during a regular shark search by the Australian Aerial Patrol just north of Wollongong, Australia.
The surfer was lucky to escape with his limbs as the school of fish attracted a huge number of sharks, starting a massive feeding frenzy.
Rescuers have been on high alert around the Australian coast following the death of 51-year-old Brian Guest, who was grabbed by a great white shark 100ft off the West Australian coast. There has been several other sightings of sharks on the Australian coasts, including Brisbane where pack of bull sharks were spotted in waist- deep water.
