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.

"In the Weeds" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. The Weedy Sea Dragon is found in the shallow water in the sea weed. This image is a reference to that and also its name. It was also amazing to find this pregnant male carrying the eggs.
