Towards me

Unfed wild dolphins are swimming freely, but sometimes they swim straight towards me like in the picture. When I see dolphins in the distance, I dive into the water and wait without moving. Instead of just passing by, there are times when they clearly find me and approach me, which makes me very happy and moved.
