good capture. i was sailing out of port aransas 4-5 years ago and had an old 11.3m camera trying to get this type of shot. because of the shutter lag all i ended up with was pictures of water..

Hi jeff,

Very nice timing, getting them in three different stages of the jump.

Might have been better if you were closer to their level, but someone probably wouldn't have appreciated you hanging over the side of the boat to get the "right" angle --

-- just kidding -- nice job!

Unless you have tried, you don't realize how hard it is to get this kind of picture. I had many opportunities back in film days, but by the timeI saw them and found them in the viewfinder, they were gone. Digital must make it easier when you don't have to worry about wasting film. Large whales are easier - they are slow enough that you can at least get the tail end as they sound! Nice shot of Common Dolphins - I echo Scott's comment about the three successive postions.

Thank you all for the nice comments. I took approximately 50 shots to get this one. It wasn't easy and I did get lucky.
