Lego diver prepares Playmobil diver for deep descent.
Magic number - A mother Humpback, her new born calf and an escorting male turn in unison approaching the lens. A heart pounding moment on a day when the curiosity of these whales was exposed with great natural light and superb visibility. Ha'apai.
1 second to impact with a 4 tonne baby Humpback Whale. Ouch!
Mother and calf pair taken in vava'u, Tonga - this timid calf kept away from us but was in constant touch of mum and the obvious affection displayed was wonderful to see.
Banded coral shrimp taken while snorkelling using a compact canon D10 while inside one of the blow holes in Tonga - was a relatively calm day otherwise it would have been a bit too rough!
