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.

Whale sharks frequent Mexico's La Paz each year around the months of Sept.-Feb. These gentle giants spend their time feeding in the plankton rich waters. La Paz has been slowly building an eco tourism business around the whale sharks.
