While capturing action shots of surfer Tyler Warren, a Great White shark breached the water and photobombed Warren!

According to Fox4News, Anast said, “[I] thought it was a dolphin,” but after taking a closer look, he realized it was a shark.

Anast shared a photo series of “the Great White Shark breach pictures” on Instagram and they gained a lot of attention!

In the photos, you can see Warren standing on his board and riding a wave. Right behind him, you can see a massive shark jumping from the water.

The shark’s body came completely out of the water and Anast managed to capture all of it.

The surfer had no idea there was a Great White shark so close to him until after the fact! They say ignorance is bliss and this might just be the perfect example of that.
