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 is a great shot of a Drum in Cozumel Mexico done on a night dive with a Dx-1G sea & sea camera and a Ys strobe.
Drum move very fast and are often hard to photograph but at night this one slowed down a bit and the flash stopped motion ...
