One of those days…

Quoting what my colleague Ioannis told me right after the sighting we had yesterday, 21st of August, “this was one of those days…”. He was absolutely right. Sometimes images tell you more that any words we might think of; this is one of those occasions.

I just wanted to share this video. It has not been edited; it is a real-time sequence. However, the behavior showed in this footage lasted much longer that what is reflected in the video presented here. To avoid making it far too long it has been cut to fit “Águas de Março“, a beautiful Brazilian song composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim. I hope you enjoy it.

    The dolphins moved like they had that particular song in their heads all the while. A beautifully synchronized swim: go team dolphins!

    WOW! Absolutely amazing footage. They looked liked they were really enjoying themselves and I swear one was definitely looking up every now and then to see whether you guys were enjoying it as much. Thanks for sharing :-) PS was Dancing Queen in the group?

    Love the video. Wish mine could have been as good. Down to operator, as dolphins just as beautiful and agile and this footage sums up the experience. The music, fits to perfection. Thank you :-)
