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.

Scalloped Hammerhead School at Darwin Island, Galapagos. July 2015
Canon G16 with Fantasea housing
Grabbed this photo as I gushed with awe as 100 hammers glided over me as I clutched a rock to keep from being swept away by 4 knot current.
