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.

Image shot on San Benedicto Island, Socorro. Fantastic diving with friendly manta's. This was a shot that I planned from home (getting a bit above). Turned out to be rather difficult (light, visibility, composition). Well here is the result.
