Jumping Shark
On July 3, 2008 Kem McNair was photographing surfers at New Smyrna beach in Florida when a six-foot spinner shark suddenly leapt out of the water. McNair managed to get three images of the event. The photos began circulating online, where they immediately attracted attention, and skepticism. However, witnesses confirmed McNair's version of what happened. Shark experts also noted that it was quite common for spinner sharks to leap out of the water, though it was rare to capture them leaping on camera.
