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.

True colors. No PS here, the light on the background sharks has passed through water enough to absorb the warm colors, giving a cool blue caste. The close shark not so.. it could be balanced in LR but I like the contrasting colors and odd lighting.

An Egg Yolk Jelly with a cross Jelly in its stomach makes this tiny Jelly look like a shape shifter. With a body so translucent that it is hard to see at times it can be hard to know who is who when your stomach is full of a Jelly cousin.
