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.

These are false killer whales that frequent isla san benedicto. They can be very friendly and curious of divers. This day we ran into a huge aggregation of more than 200 individuals. Most were too busy to pay us any attention, but these two did.
