A mighty Great White Shark prepares to take a bite out of its next meal in Guadeloupe, Mexico.
Its jaws open wide ready to devour its prey as the enormous predator closes in on its target.
One image shows a shark eyeing the photographer snapping from his cage whilst surrounded by a flurry of black and white stripy fish.
Great white sharks gained notoriety in the 1975 film ‘Jaws’ and are feared by many who go in the ocean.
Great white sharks can grow to around 20 feet in length and weigh up to 6,600 pounds, heavier than a car.
Euan Rannachan took the photos about 130 miles off the coast of Baja California.
‘A large male white shark had been interested in the bait and made a couple of half-hearted attempts to catch it,’ he said.
‘When those failed it went full apex predator on the line right in front of me.’
The photographer said he wasn’t shaken by the experience.
‘Never once have I felt scared in the cage,’ he said.
‘Once you are in the water with these animals it’s easy to show just how peaceful it is and not scary at all.
‘The sharks are curious but not aggressive towards us in the slightest.’
Sharks use their noses as a means of detecting prey in the water, feeling electrical signals in the water, even allowing it to ‘hear’ a heartbeat.
‘White sharks have little jelly-filled sacks predominantly in their noses called Ampullae de Lorenzini,’ he said.
‘They use these little holes filled with jelly to feel electrical impulses in the water such as an animal in distress.
‘They also can use these sensors to feel your heartbeat in the cage.’
