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.

Black Durgeon in Cozumel
Canon 5D3 w/ 8-15mm fisheye these fish are pretty hard to capture in Cozumel; the swift currents combined with their tendency to dive in a hole at any motion makes it quite a challenge!
