Longboat Key, Florida -- In honor of Shark Week, 10 News viewer Shelly Schwarz sent us these pics and video of an encounter with a bull shark she and her husband, Joe, had on Longboat Key back in September 2013.

Here's what Shelly told us via email Wednesday:

"The brave (stupid) person is my husband, Joe Schwarz. We had just moved to Longboat and saw the shark who was hanging around for 2 hours. We weren't aware it was a bull shark until Mote [Marine Laboratories] came. My husband thought he could out run the shark to shore only to find out sharks don't have spines and could flip back. Thankfully that didn't happen!!"
"I know it's not current, but thought for shark week it might be fun."

Thanks Shelly for the great pictures and video! Happy Shark Week!
