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.

I've learned to lay quietly on the sand and gently dig when encountering Eagle Rays. Some come over and start digging for tasty morsels right next to me. This one is over 5 feet wingtip to wingtip. Oahu, Hawaii.
