A curious baby humpback swims by me on the way to get a breath. The escort male is just visible behind momma. Despite the protection of the adult whales, two orcas killed and ate the baby the day after this photo was taken.

"Follow Me Guys" - Taken with a Canon Rebel T3i while in Phuket. I was about to ascent for a safety stop when I ran into this large school of yellow snappers. This shot I liked the most because of the counter clockwise effect.
"Electric Reflections of A Hammer" - This Over/Under was taken off the back the boat as I was hanging off the ladder while a Great Hammerhead was swimming close to the boat at the surface of the water.
I am telling you Doc.. I keep getting that feeling someone is watching me!

Love Cave, I stuck my camera into a hollowed out stump for this image. The big Leopard frog is a year-round resident, but the others are toads (Chorus Frogs) from the woods. I'm not judging, but my understanding is that they cannot mate :-)
