Dolphin and Trainer

 Dolphin and Trainer

Let’s Play!

When we attended Sea World, a new baby dolphin had been born.  I was actually disappointed.  Though we enjoyed seeing the small dolphin, they didn’t have their normal show.  The high flying dolphins are actually one of my favorite shows to watch.  I’ll post a photo of this new baby soon.

Anyway, because of the new baby, the marine biology side of these shows kicks in.  There were multiple trainers taking copious notes on all the activities of the baby dolphin and mother.  Three other “companion” dolphins were in the same tank as part of the acclimation process for this new baby.  One of these dolphins came over to say hi to the note taker for this shot.  I thought it showed the kind of relationship these mammals have with their trainers as he hung around and interacted with the human on the other side of the glass  An interesting aside from the rest of what was going on.
