[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello Everyone!!

Hope you enjoy this shot of one VERY HAPPY dolphin! She swims so free and joyful. One absolutly has to smile and feel GOOD inside when the dolphins come to play. I never ever take these moments for granted because I know they are a gift.
It's been a while since my last post. We have been traveling by boat from North Carolina to the Chesapeake Bay. This marina has wireless so I have been catching up on your postings. They are wonderful. I will work some pictures to post when I return home. Until then, hope you enjoy this image from my archives.
Have a great weekend....Kathy

Belle détente du dauphin et bon réflexe du photographe !
Bonne journée.

Hi Kathy,
He seems to sing "I feel good..." Great catch again which, I guess that it was not that easy as they swim quite fast :) Well done to freeze the movement and nice composition, TFS,

Hi Kathy,

Interesting angle, but well composed. Great action shot.


Hi Kathy,
Nice action shot, you have stopped the movement very well at 1/800th. Good detail & exposure. It looks like you caught the animal twisting & turning in a roll, great timing :)
Nicely done and TFS!
PS - The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese ;)

Hi Kathy,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. Well composed and your timing was superb to capture this.
Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

bonjour Kathy
Très belle prise de vue de ce beau dauphin avec de très beaux details et de belles couleurs,très belle présentation.
bravo et au revoir...JP

Hi Kathy,
Great action shot and I am glad to see them in the wild instead of in a basin. You seem to know Dolphins pretty well, because you knwo when to push the button and come out with a beauty.

hi Kathy,
Great shot. Good timing.Beautiful colours, sharpnes, lightings and details.
Very well composed.
