Water Animals

Challenge #12 in the WaterWorld series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
Mention water life - and fish automatically comes to mind. Well, there’s more. In this Challenge we’ll be seeing other kinds of water animals… all except fishes! Brine divers might enjoy this one, since every sea-living organism bar grasses and algae, is an animal. One might wonder whether waterbirds of amphibious creatures might be included? No. These will have a special Challenge of their own later in the series. So keep a lookout, or comb your archives for non-fish animals; those that live in water 24/7. Show us some good photography! PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES CAREFULLY. I hate having to disqualify a photo just because of an oversight...

Focal length: 28 mm
Shutter speed: 1/125 sec
Aperture: F4
ISO: 400
Notes: Tricky because the dolphins playing around the boat were too quick for auto-focus in the near darkness. So it was all manual - exposure and focus - then wait for the dolphin to appear for a moment.
