Mastery is an illusion, grace a momentary gift, apprenticeship endless.
You stole my story, MB. A friend and I were on scuba in the Keys. I was leading the way around a brain coral, big one, maybe 15 feet diameter.
As I rounded a corner I was face to face, about 4-5 feet away from a 3-4 foot barracuda. I stopped...my buddy didn't see my tail lights. He plowed into me and pushed me up nose to nose with the cuda...probably 12-18". I, too, could see the jaws/teeth working, pumping water thru his gills. It is a very malevolent sight.
I 'cussed Ricky a blue streak when we got back to the boat. Of course, he thought it was funny as hell. What an A-hole...I loved him!
It looked pretty much like this:
They wouldn't do anything to a human would they?
Is this not a reasonable place to park?

Not so long ago a local diver here met up with a great white. They recovered the fellows torso. A week later his head was found on Ten Mile Beach by some tourists about 2 miles south of where the incident occurred.
I snorkeled in these waters for about 6 years and it never comfortable for me. Cold, murky, churning swells tossing me around. That was a good days.
Poor visibility is no good at all
40 seconds in is a good point to start
The shark gave him a look over, I think if it wanted to eat him it would have. Seems like he should have held off releasing his spear until the shark was really zeroing in, not turning away. I mean if some logic could prevail at such a moment.

The title of the vid could be interpreted as "click bait" I agree but I think its highly likely the shark was in feeding mode. Great whites are known to sometimes be cautions/inquisitive before taking a kill as a self preservation strategy. Truly terrifying animals.
