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.

Tickle me Elmo. Mantas sometimes hover over the cleaning stations as the fish come up to clean them. They seem to like the bubbles sensations-but not here- this guy was nipped by a false cleaner and shot off.

This shot is at 120 Ft. at Roca Partida. The currents were very strong and trying to get this shot, with all sharks lined up, proved difficult. They are many others waiting to get inside the inset in reef.
