This photo was taken during a 4-day fishing trip at the middle Adriatic sea in Croatia.
On the last morning of our journey, a big flock of dolphins came to greet us. They were playing around the boat, chasing the bow and jumping out of the water. We even heard their voices couple of the times. It was really unique experience to meet these beautiful, clever and friendly animals.

It was really hard to capture them, they were jumping all around and it was impossible to predict where any of them will appear. So I feel really luck I made this nice photo :)

If you ever sail on the Adriatic sea, there's a big chance you'll meet the dolphins. They just love the boats and like to show off in front of the people :)


Location: Somewhere around the island of Jabuka, Adriatic sea, Croatia

 I love the title 'Animals are beautiful people'; if only more humans would know and agree to that. It sounds like you had a very special encounter with them indeed. Great job on getting on photographed so incredibly well, Striped dolphins are notoriously fast and zippy!

Hello and thank you for your comment!
Yes, it was really incredible to see them. I was on a fishing boat in the middle of Adriatic sea, and last morning of the trip they appeared. They were chasing the boat for more than half an hour. They were very hard to photograph as they are really fast and I could not predict where they would jump out of the sea. Yet, I have managed to make couple of great photos of them :)  I was lucky :)
