Terrifying moment 11ft great white shark charges diving cage captured in incredible photo by brave underwater photographer
A FEARLESS photographer captured these JAWSOME shots of a huge great white charging towards his shark cage.

Using a Canon 5d Mark IV with a 50mm lens, Kane was able to capture incredible images of the mighty apex predator as it closed in on him.
The fearsome female fish measured well over 11-foot and was more than capable of being a real-life maneater.
Kane said: “She was around 3.5 metres. It came in around two metres from the cage and then one time charged us for this shot and ended up turning off around two feet from my camera.
“I knew it was going to be a pretty wild shot but maybe too close as I was shooting 50mn.
“When I got up on the boat everyone crowded around the camera in the housing for a quick look…. and we were all blown away.”
The Neptune Islands consist of two groups of islands located close to the entrance of the Spencer Gulf.
In February, we showed the moment when another great white lunged at a photographer as he tried to get the perfect shot in the same waters.
Incredible images showed the 16-foot-long predator emerging from the water and swimming over to check out the photographer’s camera which was dangling in the waves.
