Dolphin Leaps Bird

This isn't a quilting post, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.  You may remember that I have a visitor right now and so we are touring around this week.  My husband took leave since it is his mother and it is fun to have him along with--especially as he does the driving!  Today we went to the Sea Life Park.  It is a touristy place-sort of a small version of a Sea World.  It is a little shabby, but they are renovating two of the enclosures, so maybe that is improving.  We watched the shows and during the big dolphin show I was taking pictures with my camera on burst mode when this happened:

 1.  You can see the dolphin starting its jump and the booby (the bonafide name for that type of seabird--you can't make this stuff up) is flying in that direction.

 2.  The dolphin is nearing the crest of the leap and the bird is getting closer.

 3.  The booby is now under the dolphin.

 4.  The dolphin is heading down and the booby is just to the left of it.  It sort of looks like a fin there in front of the gate.

5.  The dolphin reenters the water and the bird flies away, probably oblivious.
