For today's collection of my favorite pictures online. I decided to focus on the Dolphins.
Dolphins are nearly found worldwide in warm waters and I guess what attracts me to the dolphin is its' playfulness, intelligence, and friendliness, its built-in smile and merry-looking eyes.
So.on that note, please enjoy my best dolphin image of the day! Don't be surprised if you see more dolphin pics on this blog, yes I do have a fond spot for them!

More information about Dolphins:
Did you know that the male dolphins are larger than females, some may reach a length of nearly 6 ft (1.8 m) and a weight of over 65 lb (30 kg). Dolphins travel alone or in groups, attaining speeds of 35 mi (56 km) per hr. They feed on a variety of fishes, especially flying fish, which they sometimes pursue by leaping out of the water.
dolphins are fishlike in form, with streamlined, hairless bodies. Their powerful, horizontal flukes, or tail fins, drive them through or out of the water, while their forefins and dorsal fin are used for steering. Constantly shedding their skins, dolphins accumulate no barnacles or other external parasites. Did you know that a layer of blubber protects them from cold and seals small wounds. Dolphins breathe air through a single, dorsal blowhole.
Did you know that dolphins are often mistakenly called porpoises, a name correctly applied to small, blunt-nosed whales of another family especially in the United States.
