CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

UPI reports:

A surfer off the Massachusetts coast had an uncomfortably close encounter with a great white shark and moment was captured by a photographer on shore. Devon Zimmerman, 30, said he had only been surfing on Cape Cod off Nauset Beach in Orleans for a short time when he spotted the dorsal fin in the water only a few feet away.

Zimmerman said he lifted his feet out of the water and watched as the shark “just kept on swimming.” The surfer hurried back to shore and spoke with witnesses, including photographer Joe Mault, who captured a photo of Zimmerman warily watching the shark.
