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.

The circle behind my wife (E.T.) is in fact the light of the sun on the original picture (and of course not the light of the moon :-)). I used three filters in Photoshop.

This image of a sleeping Nurse Shark was taken during a dive off Cozumel. This is an example of exactly what Jacques Cousteau discovered about these sharks. They do not need to constantly swim and probably prefer to sleep.
