Humpback Explosion

The Monterey Bay in California has an eco-system like none other. An abundance of prey (krill, anchovies, etc) means an abundance of predators like whales, dolphins and sea lions. Here, lunge-feeding humpback whales gorge on a school of anchovies and sea lions pick up their remnants.
