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.

Remora hitching a ride on a whale shark's tail. I wonder if this one is more of a thrill seeker since he went for the craziest place instead of just hanging out on the body, or pectoral fins like his buddies!
