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.

Adding a diver to the scene will help give a sense of sca... by Alessandro Cere
Adding a diver to the scene will help give a sense of scale. In this case, my bussy started the exploration of the top deck of the Fang Ming wreck, few miles from La Paz, Mexico.

looking back.
It's unusual to find a fish looking countercurrent, in a school. This jack is the only one looking in a different direction, checking what i was doing, protecting the school.

The waterline and shark are natural, but the clouds were painted in for this (the sky was flat white).. I wanted to do some different things this year, and moving over/unders make really weird splits

Over/Under on the move- the water was calm enough for splits, but swimming with the shark causes some cool water lines and lots of misses.
