Eye Contact, Dolphin

He slowly moved past me, checking the shore in case of chasing fish here. This is common and I have wondered what they are thinking when we look right at each other.

Just as amazing is to watch a 1,400 lbs (635 kg) Dolphin gently slip under water and how they move it like it was solid matter.

When finally under there are nothing but small ripples. This is why it is so hard to see a Dolphin and figure where they might rise up again.

    1. They are large and very powerful. The inlets along South Carolina have groups of Dolphins that have taught themselves to herd and chase fish to the shore, effectively stranding them. The Dolphin throw themselves on the shore and catch them. This is the only place known for this type of hunt, and I can tell you…do not get close to the shore when they charge.

      At times 5 or 6 Dolphin can come out of nowhere and swim onto the shallows and shore. I have several articles and images here, search for Dolphin and you will find them.
