But that breath would have done him good to keep as he was flipped into the air and thrown into the water. As Odysseus took stock of his new surroundings he looked off to his right and saw the crystyl blue eye of the monster. Odysseus took all of his strength and punched the beast in the eye, and then swam as hard he could with his legs. Gray Eyed Athena watched in shock as the monster had the audacity to not only use the tactic of retreating into the water to its advantage but to also forgo the warning she had given it. After a few frantics minutes of Odysseus trying to flip the boat over, Gray Eyed Athena used her divine powers to stab the creature in the eye.
When I walked into the pool area on my first day of high school swimming practice in seventh grade, I made two goals for myself to accomplish during my high school swimming career: break the Sartell school record of 55.88 seconds in the 100 yard backstroke and win the MSHSL Class A State Championship in that event as well. For six years, I trained everyday with these goals in the back of my mind. After numerous trips to the State meet, I had yet to achieve what I had set out to do. When I qualified for the State meet my senior year of high school, it was my last opportunity to turn my goals into a reality. My senior year State meet was different than previous years.
For example, another great scene was when they used the Jaws theme to build suspense, when Matt Harper decides to build the cage and decides to stick poison into the shark to finally end this and the shark attacks the cage. But he loses the staff after stabbing the shark and decides swim after the pole, so Matt Harper hides underwater behind the rock. Quint and Brody decide to bring up the Cage and the great editing between the shark footage used and the blended boat footage when they are bringing up the cage and you see this great footage of this shark going crazy on top of the cage and then the shark swims away. The shark has finally submerged the ship and we see the shark on the boat for the first time while Quint is fighting the shark away the shark grabs Quint and kills him and swims away with Quint. Then the shark comes back to attack Brody and he picks up an air tank and sticks into the shark's mouth and the shark swims away.
Suspense is further created in the scene with the fishing line used to attract the shark to the boat, centred in the frame, as the audience wait in fear for the shark to emerge. When the audience gets a first look at the shark, it comes as a surprise. The shark is seen over Hooper’s shoulder. This shot selection takes the audience off guard, as they have been conditioned from previous events in the film to anticipate the shark’s arrival when the film employs underwater shots and John Williams’ two note score. Spielberg continues to create tension in the action sequences with the shark by suggesting its presence once more with the yellow compressed air barrel, and the prosthetic shark is only fully seen when it attacks Quint.
This strategy is always passed on from generation to generation. The third of them is the carousel-feeding technique. The carousel-feeding technique is how their pod releases cooperatively a burst of air bubbles and belly flashes to herd the herring into a tight ball close the surface of the water. The purposes of slapping the ball with their tails are to stun the fish and to gulp down by the mouthful in the easier way. (Nature(PBS),
The two sentinels fired again, independently and ineffectual. The hunted man saw all this over his shoulder; he was now swimming vigorously with the current. His brain was as energetic as his arms and legs; he thought with the rapidity of lightning”(Bierce
Crossing the Line Sapphire waves crash down on the shore crackling like thunder; they race to the sand dunes, but unknown forces pull them back. Waves are like people, unique. They are born different sizes and contain various levels of swiftness. Under the waves, hundreds of different species are frolicking around, living in the moment. Hooks submerge in the water trying to disturb mother nature’s food chain; thus, making the number of species drop.
For the last two years swimming has taken up most of my time. That time was spent getting faster, conversing with teammates, and helping the younger girls get better. After practice one day my coach informed me that I would not be making the sections team because of my time. Being the first senior in five years not to make it, I felt like a failure. For the next few days of practice I checked out mentally.
A structural adaptation is defined as “physical features of an organism like the wings on a bird”. This adaptation is correctly shown in the movie in many instances, when the turtles are swimming away from sharks it shows their flippers enabling them to move fast and when Sammy gets helped by the humans on land it also shows how slow sea turtles move when they are not in the
Especially for evasion or retreat, cephalopods use a particular type of locomotion through jet propulsion done through filling animal’s mantle cavity with water before pressing the water out of the cavity's opening with high speed. In general, cephalopods are the most active of the molluscs in their swimming speed. Self-defense: Cephalopods possess effective mechanisms which they might use for self-defense. For example, the ink similar substance produced from a gland in squids is used to confuse the attacker and even hampers its olfactory organs, so it cannot smell the squid. Some octopuses also use ink to confuse a prey (especially big ones, like lobsters) before attacking it from behind.
With each sway, I could see farther and farther beyond the buildings. Stomach fluttering, I squeezed my eyes shut, and tried to inhale and forget about my stomach leaving the atmosphere. Screams encompassed me, coming in from all directions. Prying my eyes open, before me laid out an endless ocean of boisterous waves. Bracing myself for the drop, a scream escaped my mouth as we swooped towards the ground.
It doesn’t stop. Then the first tree falls. You realize this is the time to run. You run towards the helicopter, taking out the obsidian rock, just in case. You hear Phil yelling behind you but his words are slurred and you know he is more and more under the influence of the crab.
Suddenly the shark made its move at Odysseus, but Odysseus was one step ahead and he flailed to the side and jabbed his spear into the heart of the shark killing it. Odysseus removed a tooth and began to swam back to the shore, but while he was swimming back he heard the most beautiful voices singing. He disregarded them and went back to the woman 's hut. When he handed the woman the tooth she placed the tooth in the bottle, but this time she took Odysseus to the shore and told him to turn around. When he turned back the bottle was gone and there in the water was a ship.
I immediately panic, it seems as though death does not suit me. Using my one arm and leg I push my way to the surface. Looking around I see a beach like area. Kicking and flailing my appendages to my best ability I hope it 's enough to make it the the rivers edge. Beaching myself, I crawl about three feet before throwing up the water in my lungs.
The Mako shark species is about to go endangered and we need to protect them. Mako shark 's body is shaped to swim fast. They have a long slim body to allow the mako shark to swim up to 40 mile per hour(Sharks World, 2015). Their back ranges from a dark blue to a purple with a white belly. Male mature to be 2 meters maximum, females mature to be 2.6 to 4 meters long(Carson, 2015).
