[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On my holidays in Cuba I visited Acuario Cajo Naranjo.
It was a very special expereance. It is situated in a bay. They told me that some dolphins disappear for a couple of weeks and then come back. I cannot verify that, but why should not I believe this.
Although it costed patience I took several for me great shots.
As you can see in my opinion Flipper is laughing and looks happy with the clouds on his head.

Hope you like it too, thanks for looking.

Hi Viv

Lovely shot of Flipper, great pose, lovely colours and I really like the clouds reflected on his head.

I agree he does look happy and I'm sure he will make lots of people happy just by looking at him :)

An amazing shot, Viv.
I like your smiling dolphin a lot. Great POV.
Was this taken in the wild or in a controlled environment
The light is just perfect. Love the cloud reflection on the head.
TFS. : )

Hi Vivian,
Great closeup portrait on this dolphin. Nice frame filling shot. The colors and detail look great.

Hello Vivian!
Very nice portrait of the dolphin. Most of the time shots taken from above the head of the animal do bother me a bit, but this is not the case. Very good composition and exposure. Congratulations,

Hi Vivian,
Superb close up shot of this cute dolphin. Sharp, neat, and great details. Greatly composed.
