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.

This photo of the schooling Porkfish was taken last week while diving on one of my favorite reefs in Cozumel, Paso Del Cedral. The sun was hidden behind rain clouds but still the dive was great!

Snortin' bull sea lion, Los Islotes, La Paz, Mexico. Canon 400D. Came around a boulder and surprised (and was surprised by) this bull. He was telling me to get out of his territory. I did, but not before taking his picture.

My favorite dive site in Cozumel seems to always have a school of Porkfish that congregate in the same location every time I have visited this reef. Paseo De Cedral.
