A Smile and A Wink!
Excellent capture of this amazing animal, nice pose with the Dolphin riding the bow waves and good detail, infact he looks like he is showing off for the camera and he certainly looks like he is enjoying himself.
Thanks for Sharing & Well Done
This is a great shot that would have been difficult to time and focus accurately. Well done.

A great action shot of this dolphin enjoying himself.
It must have taken some quick reflex on your part to freeze that frame. : )
You are right, dolphins are amazing creatures.
I really like the composition,
with the dolphin making this arc out of the water.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful shot with us.

Une image très dynamique dans un excellent cadrage. Au 250ème les goutelettes d'eau sont figées mais donnent encore du mouvement. Bien fait. Merci.
This is a very good catch in action! I like the compo and water splash. Wow! These animals are amazing. I never had the chance to photographed one but I love them very much. They are so intelligent and they share a complex language. TFS,
Hi Kathy. I love dolphins! This shot encapsulates everything a natural dolphin action shot has to offer. The composition is great, PoV and splash just spot on. Something very minor though... the contrast and sharpness could be adjusted slightly, I have done a workshop to explain what I mean. I hope you don't mind. TFS Tim

Great action shot Kathy.
I play with little Hectors Dolpins here in NZ,but I've yet to get a good photo of one.
This is really good though.
Hi Kathy, great "decisive moment" picture, well focused and arranged. On another level, the water seems really dirty (Nile water!), is this a particularly polluted area? TFS, Betty
This is magnificent action shot.I liked POV,cross framing,moment you caught,expression on face,details and composition a lot.Exposure is spot on.Excellent work!

What an amazing photo. Photographing wildlife in water in very difficult, because you never know when they pop up and where. You captured her perfectly with great control over the exposure and movement.

Excellent capture Cathy. When I was in NZ I saw a pod of 200 Dolphins, but I couldn't capture one leaping. Your shot is amazing and so close!
