Bottlenose Dolphins

Photographed these sea beauties in the middle of the Arabian Sea. It's a different feel to see these creatures in the wild, playing along with their brood. A couple of these curious mammals did come close to my Ship to investigate it and swam along with her for about a mile, until a new batch of dolphins took over and continued swimming ahead of the ship's bow for another mile or so and were replaced by yet another batch for another mile. It seemed like the dolphins were escorting my ship as we passed through their wild territory. Since these mammals need to surface every 5-6 minutes to breathe, we at sea, see these mammals often, especially in warm waters.
