I thought others may find this interesting. The amateur naturalist in the article is my father. The graduate student has become somewhat of an extended family member of ours. It's amazing what you can find in your own backyard if you care to look.

Where was this video shot at. I live ont he coast of South Carolina and this behavior can be seen on Several of the barrier islands.

It is quite fascinating to observe. Creepy when your standing 2 feet from the shore line and very large dolphin comes up out of the water and eye balls you for a few seconds.

I agree. Especially now that I know how vicious they can be. Dolphins aren't the "flipper" we've all have come to know.

That's quite interesting, thanks for sharing. Cetaceans are just awesome and dolphins are probably the most charming among them. I gotta give it up to Orcas though. Definitely my favorite.
