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.

Whaleshark eye contact. No strobes allowed so close focus with a wide lens and the sun at your back helps.
