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.

When I night dive in Cozumel I always see these big coral crabs but even with the beautiful texture of their shell the shots all start to look alike. So I felt really lucky to catch this poser as it ran up on a rock and posed with the finger coral

This image ws taken at Santa Rosa Wall, just more proof that the clear and warm water enable the sponges, corals and soft corals thrive. The colors are fascinating and this part of the wall is an awesome dive.
