Have you ever opened your phone’s camera to take a picture of something, only to find that the front-facing camera opens instead?
It’s always a little jarring to see your face up-close like that, isn’t it?
If it’s happened to you, then you probably know how this big Great White felt when he came face-to-face with a camera!
While visiting New Brighton State Beach in California, Bonnie Brown — who works with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife — put her GoPro camera underwater.
A large dark shadow appeared, and it was coming closer. It was a huge great white shark!
Bonnie had already seen at least nine sharks while out on the water.
By this point, she’d realized that they must be intrigued with her camera.
The shark in the video below was no different. In fact, he may have been attracted to the camera. Maybe he wanted to take a selfie.
In the video, the massive predator can be seen as it gets close enough to the camera. At first, it looks like the great white only plans to swim by. Suddenly, however, he turns and nudges the camera with his nose, getting in for one epic close-up!
And like anyone who opens their front cameras by accident, the shark quickly turns away, as if to say, “Whoops — didn’t mean to do that!”
