"It is quite an awesome thing to see the dolphins swim up next to the children and interact with them!"

Today I give you a look at that interaction. The dolphins would swim up beside the children and occasionally they would stop and look at them, sometimes they would blow bubbles. All of this, of course, to the childrens utter delight!

In times like ours, when there is so much hatred in the world, so many wars, and natural disasters, it's nice to see the children's smiling faces, and to hope for a better tomorrow.

Hi John,
This is also a nice capture.I like it .You take moving dolpins with slow speed but photo is perfact!Thanks for sharing.

I think I liked the previous shot more. In this photo I would have liked to see more dolphin eyes, if you know what I mean. However, it is a great moment you captured and a great note. Well done!

I like this but having seen the other shot first, I think this is a bit over crowded.
NIce lighting though and good details for the difficult enviroment.
Take care!

Hi John,
I like both shots very much. Although they are similar, they each have some unique qualities. I guess if I was forced to pick I would take the first one, but I like the dolphins closer to the glass in this one.
I do love them both. Great Job!

John, lovely creatures everywhere.

I like the shot. We usually don't see humans here, but that doesn't bother in the picture.

I've never seen a dolphin. Thanks for sharing.
