Patti Von Fremd, of Miramar Beach , shot this photo from her porch about a half mile east of the Whale’s Tail Wednesday morning. She said the shark was identified as a hammerhead and continued to swim toward the shore than back out for about 20 minutes. She said a man on a paddleboard approached the shark and tried to scare him off but it just got him mad and he circled back around.  “It was very scary,” she said. “But everyone is fine, so it was pretty exciting.”
