13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

During an eco-boat tour, I had the opportunity to photograph hawaiian spinner dolphins. While photographing the dolphin's game of pass-the-leaf, I was able to catch a moment where they appear to be holding flippers. Supporting a local community's eco-tourist business that supports non-evasive wildlife experiences is an ideal form of sustainable travel. The experience gave me knowledge, awareness and a rare moment with wild dolphin in their native habitat.
