Dolphin

Another first for me: a dolphin cruise, taken in late February from Marco Island, Florida. This particular cruise combines tourism with research; i.e. every time the boat goes out for dolphin research, the two marine biologists/tour guides take tourists with them and explain what they’re doing and why.   Very interesting.

This particular dolphin was following our speeding boat, playing with us and just showing off.  I was at the stern (rear end of the boat for you land lubbers) trying to hold my camera steady while hanging on for dear life.  We were really moving.

I feel fortunate to get this shot, but missed two of them jumping together while I was changing memory cards.  Oh well, I still have the memory of that thrilling sight.

Thought for the Day:  The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.                                                                                                                                      Eleanor Roosevelt
