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.

This image of sponges is just one group of thousands of species found off the beautiful walls of Cozumel. Crystal clear and warm water feed these sponges as they are filter feeders.

One of my favorites - French Angelfish are so friendly and photogenic. I followed this Angel for a minute or so and she rewarded me with a frontal shot.

I have never seen this shrimp before this trip to Cozumel, and saw it almost every Caribbean carpet anemone there. Obviously the health of the reef is excellent, Any help in ID on this shrimp would be great!

I enjoy watching these juv. Angelfish flutter back and forth with the current and the color is striking and hard to miss! This image was taken during a dive off Cozumel and Villa Blanco Wall.

When I night dive in Cozumel I always see these big coral crabs but even with the beautiful texture of their shell the shots all start to look alike. So I felt really lucky to catch this poser as it ran up on a rock and posed with the finger coral
