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 bottlenose dolphin was creating quite a havoc on the reef this morning. It was chasing jacks and mantas alike.I got this pic of the dolphin hitching a ride on the mantas tail. The dolphin must have thought it very funny.
