Judy Labrona posted these photos above on her Facebook page and sent the photos to Bill’s Channel and Bill’s Channel Facebook page.

Labrona supposedly took the pictures while in Sri Lanka. “I went snorkeling and came across a guy taking his elephant for a swim. I started taking some pictures and then – out of the blue – this shark showed up. The good thing was the shark was so fascinated with the elephant I don’t think he even noticed me. The shark eventually swam off and the elephant headed back to shore.”

Besides the fact that most Sri Lankan elephants do not have tusks, the young lady describes her experience so close to the great white shark with such calm that these are just a few hints to us that implies the interesting photo is a clever use of Photoshop.
