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.

This year the pygmy devil rays were better than ever. Their acrobatics are eternally humorous and extremely hard to capture. Canon Rebel xt 70-300.
