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.

Here are some very friendly bottle nose dolphins. It's a mother, a juvenile, and a newborn. I encountered them in blue water a few miles from San Benedicto Island.

A creative look at some baitball action in San Benedicto. This is a Silky shark moving through a huge baitball in a feeding frenzy.

Brilliant shark shot with superb light and the "splash in effect" gives the little extra. Very well done, Christian. Save the sharks !
