Down,Under and Around.

IT was crowded on shore.. its Sunday the beach is busy. I swam out deeper than i usually do because i knew the dolphins, if they came could hear those people on shore and that might make them a little less likely to swim in to shallower water. They appeared out of nowhere, first the moms and the babies, and like I thought they were not comfortable with the noise coming from shore. I manage to get one grainy rough picture of a mom and young baby. The pod of Moms, babies and babysitters didnt linger long they moved on out.














Following them was the pod I call the "rowdies" younger males, high energy. LOVE to play. Sure enough, they take one look at me...






dove down right next to me









proceed to swim UNDER me.....








THEN they start swimming around my body in circles.










A little nervous at first i quickly relaxed when i saw one of the dolphins had a brown LEAF in his mouth!
Can you see it ? rascals, they were playing!!

LOLOL... I am an island gal...

It is so wonderful to see that it seems that the dolphins have accepted you into their group like this. They will probably move away if somebody else had to get this close to them. Most people would give their front teeth to swim with dolphins like that.

You can tell Fire that the dolphins recognize you. Dolphins see with sonar, so i think i have spent so long in the water their sonars pick up my form which they recognize.
Thank you so much for the nice comment you left on my blog *smiling*

I wanted to direct you to a little magazine that is published here in North Carolina -called OCEAN Magazine - all about the ocean - Diane Buccheri is the publishing editor and is always looking for photographs and poems and stories about the ocean...maybe you'd like to check it out -either as a reader or if you want to see if any of your photos would fit her magazine! (I don't know if you write about the sea, but she is always looking for good writing that is ocean related)...just thought of that when I saw the photos and read how you swam with those beautiful creatures...
