Here's a beautiful video of a Great Hammerhead honing in on a piece of fish. The action has been reduced to slow motion for the second viewing which gives viewers the opportunity to truly appreciate the beauty of this magnificent shark.

The video was posted by Skyler Thomas and this is what he had to say about the clip:
"The more times I watch this clip the more I appreciate the small details, such as the fluttering of the gills or the eyes detecting the bait in the upper right corner before honing in on it. Imagine how many redirects took place in that one second that the shark spun and tracked down the bait. Humbling and a joy to watch"
The video is a short 45 seconds in length and is initially shown at regular speed.
