1. They're like you.
Sure, dolphins live in the water and you live on land. And yes, they
look more like fish than people. But dolphins are mammals, just as
you are. So dolphins and people have lots of things in common,
including being warm-blooded, breathing air with lungs, and nursing
2. They come in lots of sizes. You're probably familiar with
bottlenose dolphins (above). But there are more than 30 kinds
of dolphins. The smallest are about as long as you are tall. And the
biggest are almost as long as a school bus! You can't always tell a
dolphin by its name: Orcas (killer whales), for example, belong to
the dolphin family.
3. They're great athletes. Dolphins are acrobats. Maybe
you've seen them at marine parks or aquariums, performing amazing
flips and leaps. The most athletic dolphin of all is the dusky
dolphin. Many dolphins leap out of the water as they swim.
Dolphins perform their gymnastics for a number of different
reasons. Depending on the type of dolphins, they may do it to talk
to each other/ communicate, to search for food,
to have fun.

pictures. The birds, marine life - everything is in motion at
that time of day and we hit the water early to catch a beautiful
sunrise in order to get the best possible lighting for your photo
the rich, low-angled light spills warmly across the water and beach
illuminating all the feather details and color of the birds...the
blues and purples, oranges, reds and pinks of the sun rising over
the water makes for the perfect photo opportunity!
sunsets are great, too. A good sunset fires the sky with light that
reflects off the water and with backgrounds like that, how can you
miss taking beautiful photographs?
