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.

This Whale Shark circles as we observe its entangled in a thick fishing line. The line, wrapped around the midsection, was deeply embedded in the whale shark's skin and must have been there for some time. The shark was later cut free.
