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.

Bubbles!!
One of my favorite Queen Angels ever
She spent half an hour hanging out in front of my face and would try to swallow any dime sized bubbles out of my regulator. Usually the Queens are too busy to let us peasants near, was so awesome!

Drifting along with a brisk current, this Hawksbill turtle just instantly epitomizes Cozumel for me with the clear blue water and the boat and sun overhead.
