Dolphin watching is equal parts amazing and frustrating for me as a photographer. Fortunately I have had a number of opportunities to see these incredible animals in the wild. What is frustrating is how difficult they are to capture on camera. This is partly due to their social personalities and great speed in the water. Before ever having seen them I had hoped to capture them leaping out of the water. So far this is as close as I have come to this goal. Here the dolphin is not so much leaping as simply coming up for breath.
