âClosing in on a moving target:
Take a closer look at this sequence captured with a 360 camera. Even though the camera is being pulled away (which is why the camera survived) the 360 capability allowed me to rotate the view so as to keep looking at the shark and appreciate its adjustments as it attempts to close in on a moving target. Of particular interest are details we might otherwise miss while we obsess over the teeth. Look at the ongoing use of the fins, especially the pectoral fins! Appreciate how many times the head and body turn in a split second! We see again that the eye is a 3 dimensional, beautiful orb, not a dead, black socket in the skull. And we see the size of the gills which are necessary to provide oxygen to an animal of this size and speed. But we also see that the throat is closed off to protect the stomach from being flooded with the same rush of water that provides the oxygen!
All that information in what, in real-time, was a few seconds of footage!!!
