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.

Giant's gaze. Male escort humpback eyes the photographer but passes calmly by, raising his pectoral fin just over my head to avoid contact.

"Bubble Job" These resident giant mantas seek out divers and seem to enjoy the feel of bubbles.

After spending several days with this mama and calf at Roca Partida, Socorro, we watched in horror as two Orcas killed the baby. This photo reminds me of the beautiful encounter I had. The circle of life is magnificent yet cruel.

A curious baby humpback swims by me on the way to get a breath. The escort male is just visible behind momma. Despite the protection of the adult whales, two orcas killed and ate the baby the day after this photo was taken.

Magical shot showing the ocean's most majestic creatures and making us all jealous :) The ambient light here worked perfectly and the colors are deep and precise. Clear winner!

Impressive shot! Eagle rays usually won't let you get this close but this one seems to like you. Nice and dramatic capture.
