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.

Halocline / I took this picture while cave diving in the Ponderosa Cave system in the Yucatan, Mexico. The halocline, where the fresh and salt water meet, create a line through the picture as the light refracts through the different water densities.
