16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Dolphin Breaching

55 miles off Long Island New York we were trolling for tuna. A pod of dolphins came and started to swim with the boat. They swam sideways trying to figure out what I was. They began to communicate and as the adults were swimming in front of the boat the babies were jumping out of the water on the sides. It was incredible to look them in the eyes and to hear their clicks and whistles.
