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.

Octoporn. I would have preferred a different category for this image, but these mating Octopus blend into the reef and rock so well that the image is too busy. I used brushes to try and obliterate the rocks and release the Octopus from them..

This shot is at 120 Ft. at Roca Partida. The currents were very strong and trying to get this shot, with all sharks lined up, proved difficult. They are many others waiting to get inside the inset in reef.
