[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) - Drake Bay

i saw that thin water line from the surface to the dorsal fin few times in the photos i've taken.

new born or baby dolphins tend to take their whole head out of water to breathe but adults can breath from their blowholes while their heads are below the surface. all this takes few seconds or less, so it's a real challenge to picture adult dolphins from a boat.

below is the link about my thoughts about dolphin captivity. (in turkish)

Merhaba Sarp Bey,
Verdiginiz linkte yazdiklariniza gonulden katiliyorum. Hayvanlara karsi yapilan bu vurdumduymazlik ve saygisizlik sadece yunuslarla kalmiyor...
Cok guzel fotograf. Emeginize saglik

Halo Sarp,
Yine güzel bir kare ve verdiğin linkdeki önemli vurgulamalar da güzel. Her zman dediğim gibi " Çiçek nasıl dalında güzelse, hayvan da doğasında güzeldir". Selamlar.
