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.

We were "blue water hunting", looking for things in blue water. It only took these silky sharks a few minutes to show up. More and more accumulated and in the end we had close to 200 hundred silkies. It was impossible to fit them all in the frame.

These were sailfish finishing a baitball and moving to another. We kept having to jump into the boat, find them, and jump in again. They would attack the bait for awhile, but would move on. One of my friends jumped in with scuba for a different look.
