Here are some very friendly bottle nose dolphins. It's a mother, a juvenile, and a newborn. I encountered them in blue water a few miles from San Benedicto Island.

Brilliant shark shot with superb light and the "splash in effect" gives the little extra. Very well done, Christian. Save the sharks !
