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.

Diving on paradise Reef in Cozumel seems to be like diving in a nursery. This is an image of a French Angelfish before losing its stripes for speckles. Very small and did nothing but flitter around the sponge.

Off the hook! (but with the hook) This shark has been going through tough times, as evident by the scars and the hook in her mouth. I wish people would realize that sharks are not enemies, and that we ruibn the planet by killing them!

Size doesn't matter! Male Sailfin blenny protecting his territory against "the intruder". He actually nibbled on my daughter's finger when she moved it just a tiny bit closer.
