What do you get when you mix a very expensive underwater camera rig with a pillaging tiger shark-burglar? You get the hilarious picture seen above.

Photographer Karin Brussaard was minding her own business, swimming off the coast of the Bahamas in tiger shark country, when “Sharky the Kid,” snatched and took off with her rig. Thankfully, this aquatic Butch Cassidy dropped the rig a few moments later when it realized that is was not in fact a tasty morsel. The equipment was left virtually undamaged.
