Inspired by nearby competition, this male humpback put some serious power into this series of forward lunges. In 7 years of whale watching, I had never seen a lunge like this from this angle. Taken with a canon 350d and 70-300 lens.

The waterline and shark are natural, but the clouds were painted in for this (the sky was flat white).. I wanted to do some different things this year, and moving over/unders make really weird splits

Over/Under on the move- the water was calm enough for splits, but swimming with the shark causes some cool water lines and lots of misses.
