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.
