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.

I've seen many silhouette shots with whale sharks, but I like this one because you can observe the snorkelers interacting. It seems every diver silhouette has its own story.

This freediver was taking video of a baitball. The bait moved in perfect unison to keep its safe distance from the diver.
