After spending several days with this mama and calf at Roca Partida, Socorro, we watched in horror as two Orcas killed the baby. This photo reminds me of the beautiful encounter I had. The circle of life is magnificent yet cruel.

"The Epiphany"
While freediving in the Bahamas, we came across a playful pod of Bottlenose and Spotted Dolphins…I was lucky enough to swim with this beauty for a little while, before she went back to her pod. A wonderful encounter!
