Taken 2 months ago at Seaworld. My husband and daughter were dilly-dallying so I waited for them next to the dolphin enclosure. It was just amazing because this one of two dolphins who were quietly at the back, came straight for me, popped right out of the water a couple of times and then did this slow swimming - as though giving me permission for a photo shoot. While out of the water, I just started talking to it telling it was so beautiful and amazingly this dolphin started talking back. It was so special. As other people started coming over, the game was suddenly over. I'm still not sure if Pete & Bron believe me! It probably does sound like I make stuff up but I love animals so much, somehow I think of it as a little reward for what I put in.

My other half and i love dogs, but she feeds birds, squirells even a wild rat once until one of the dogs put an end to that. She buried the rat in a box in the garden and sobbed,

How lovely and you were so lucky to have had that contact. I have swam with them and the chemistry between them and us, is fantastic. Last week I was watching TV and looked up and saw a family of dolphins 'larking' about inthe sea below my window. I was spell bound!!! Superb photo too.
