If I could be any animal… | N. Virginia Portrait Photographer

Which one would I be?  Our children ask me this question often.  

After our visit to the aquarium it has become a hot topic around here.

So, my answer to them is always the same…. “I would be a dolphin”.

I have to admit this was my favorite part of the day seeing the dolphin exhibit.  Sure capturing icky creatures was fun to do, as well as, the jellyfish and tropical fish.   BUT spending 30 minutes watching the dolphins do their thing and show off their amazing power….MY FAV!!!!  I was lucky enough several years ago to swim with dolphins in Jamaica and will never forget that experience.

It was so funny watching the clueless people walking by the dolphins performing…see their reflection in the glass?

As we waited for most of the other guests to empty out the dolphin arena, I noticed that the area across from us was where my husband and I just had our 10th wedding anniversary photos.  HOW COOL!!!!  Open-mouthed smile

Then we walked down below to see the dolphins up a bit closer.  The glass is VERY thick so it was next to impossible to get clear shots of them.   However, I still love these.  This dolphin literally swam right to us and then came super close to the glass and stayed by the children while I captured him/her.   I think it even smiled at us.

Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.   Open-mouthed smile   So what animal would you be?

Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed day!
