Always following you by woxys Always following you by woxys
To be honest, when I post dolphin photo, I always feel the strong tendency to disable comments. Why? Because I am not only tired, but FED UP with kids who just saw the Cove and now they consider themselves experts on dolphin captivity. Do not bother, kids. I know ALL those arguments, I used to be anti-dolphinariums as well. But then I read much more info and facst and even some interesting information about your god O'Barry. So all I can recommend is: USE YOUR BRAIN AND STUDY THE ISSUE PROPERLY BEFORE YOU MAKE AN OPINION - and SURELY BEFORE YOU START TEACHING ME!

I, of couse, respect opinions of people who are very interested in an issue, read many books and are still against the dolphin captivity. I have NO problem with that. But I will be always annoyed by kids who base all their attitude on ONE movie, which is in fact no documentary, but rather ideology based movie.

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Common Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)
Location: warm and temperate tropical oceans worldwide
Size: 2 - 4 metres long weight: 150 650 kg
Diet: fish, cephalopod, crustacean
Conservation status: Least Concern
Interesting facts: dolphin is a mammal, not a fish! Baby dolphins always drink mother milk | dolphins have bigger brains, than humans | dolphins usually live in groups | dolphin is one of few animals, who kill not only for food! Dolphins are well-known for killing porpoises, their smaller "cousins". Male dolphins are also known to rape the females. Male dolphins even kill baby dolphins to make their mothers want to mate again. Dolphins are not that cute and nice animals, as many people think. They have no problem to kill a shark and they sometime annoy or sexually harass swimmers in the sea | dolphins use very effective echolocation to search for prey | dolphins are time to time found washed ashore, too often dying nobody knows, why this happens.
Relationship with humans: people keep dolphins in aquariums and dolphinarius, where the animals perform special tricks dolphins very easily learn those tricks | there are scientific researches about dolphins, which usually prove their high inteligence | dolphins appear in many human legends | some dolphins help people to hunt fish throught whole generations of both, people and dolphins | US army uses dolphins, teaching them to find mines and so on... | in some parts of the world, wild dolphins come from their own will to interact with people

What the Wha?!

My goodness, How on earth were you able to get a nice clear shot at those dolphins while they were moving without getting a single blurr on your photo?

:iconwoxys:
to be honest... I do not know :( I often manage to take relatively good photos of animals, although other people have problems to shoot them in the same exhibit. I do not know how I do it, I have no technique at all :(

What do you mean? What are you saying?

I didn't say your photo was bad. I was actually surprised about your photo of the dolphins because it looks.... perfect. My photos that I took of the animals in the glass at the aquarium and the zoos are usally bad. So I was curious on how you got a good picture of the dolphins if they were behind a glass window at the aquarium.

And what made you say that you have no technique?

And why are you sad? :(

Did I say something rude? :(

nope, you did not say anything rude, I know that your last comment was a compliment - thank you :nod: I am just sad that I have no technique to snap sharp photos, I do not understand my camera, although I should :(

but if you want an advice: when I take photos of water animals through the glass, I always take many many many many photos. And by many, I mean at least hundreds! Usually, at last few of them are sharp :nod:

I was here, and then I was gone again. :D Sorry for the late reply!

I've been busy helping to look after my nephew during the week. He's got boundless energy and doesn't leave us any time to do anything else. I'm ready for bed by the time he goes home! :giggle: :sleep:

How about you? How have you been?
