[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This guys are the two from the famous Spinner Dolphis that live in the island of Fernando de Noronha, PE, Brazil. They live in the "baía dos golfinhos" (Dolphin´s Bay) where they are protected by the law. So it´s not allowed to dive with them. (just for cientific purposes.) I was aboard the diving operator´s boat, just resting between the first to the second diving when suddenly this group of dolphins got close to the boat. Considering we are out off the dolphin´s bay, I took my mask and camera and get wet as soon as possible, even without finns. This is a little bit from what I saw... I didn´t used flash because I was just a couple of meters underwater. Regards!

This is a very nice shot Jose. Very sharp and clear. I really love the light and the blue tones. Well done & TFS!


This is a nice shot and is nicely focused which I know from experience can be difficult with a Nikonos V and its fantastic "guess the distance to the rapidly moving subject" lens!
