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 fish eggs that the whale sharks are feasting upon are very visible going into this shark's mouth.
