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.

'Daniel and (gentle) Goliath'
Those who know me well, know my favourite colour is grey.
I'm a big lover of the dapple grey horses for their patterned coats.
I now have a new favourite pattern!

While in Isla Mujeres to swim with Whale Sharks we lucked into a wonderful sharp eyed dive master who found some Green Sea Turtles mating and helped us go into stealth mode to quietly sneak up and observe. So awesome!!!

Whale Shark "Botellita"
They get vertical in dense areas of plankton to gulp in
large amounts of food. It is one of the most incredible sights that
I've ever seen! Giant fish just hanging suspended in the water column - very cool!

well, apparently all of the scientists have made a grave error...
Whale Sharks do like to eat humans! Hahaha. Not photoshopped, other than to color correct and remove some backscatter; the shark and swimmer just lined up perfectly. wink
