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.

Whale sharks frequent Mexico's La Paz each year around the months of Sept.-Feb. These gentle giants spend their time feeding in the plankton rich waters. La Paz has been slowly building an eco tourism business around the whale sharks.

A rare sighting of cownose rays. These divers watched on as they swam beneath. Cownose rays seem to prefer cooler water of approx. 79 degrees. They are seen only seasonally. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
