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.

Diving on paradise Reef in Cozumel seems to be like diving in a nursery. This is an image of a French Angelfish before losing its stripes for speckles. Very small and did nothing but flitter around the sponge.
