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.

Shots taken of a subject between 3 inches and 1 foot (7.5 to 30cm) in size (e.g. large fish or diver head) that dominates the frame - any background is incidental and occupies LESS THAN 50% of frame. (cutting it close on the 50% part, but its macro)

Was it Jaws 3 or 4 where it ate the Helicopter? I layered this mainly because with refraction at the waterline the body didn't line up nicely, but a little Gin made the drone sound fun. The untouched version is in the over/under category..
