Random Photo: Jumping Dolphin

A few weeks ago I took a whale watching cruise out of Long Beach’s Rainbow Harbor, and although we didn’t see any whales, we did come across a mega pod of dolphins with an estimated 1,000 dolphins in it.

As we were leaving there were several dolphins surfing in the wake of the boat and I managed to capture this shot of a dolphin jumping out of the water.
