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.

"Magic"
I shot this photo while freediving in Isla Mujeres. Whale Sharks are such gentle and majestic giants. I was very honored, as well as humbled to meet a few eye to eye on this recent trip!

Bonito eggs happily don't show up as much as some plankton- you can see them streaked because of the panning of the camera- even at 160th second shutter. I applied a soft vignette in white and desaturated.
