Thanks to Daphne, through whom I found this.


  1. I've seen this before, Katherine. It is absolutely amazing and calming and the music chosen is so apt too.

  2. I have never seen this before, Katherine. Other than that difference, GB's comment could be mine.

  3. Wow. I knew dolphins were playful, intelligent creatures, but who knew they'd do this? And HOW do they make those bubble rings??

    Thanks! I'm going to share that one! :)

  4. I presume they blow them from their air holes in much the same way as we blow smoke-rings. At one point in the vid you can see one making one larger with a puff of water from its hole.

    Of course some 'people' can make more than just rings:

  5. Fascinating - and another vote for the music!

  6. Hello Emily! Yes, fascinating dolphin behaviour. Another intelligence, another world in which to use it...
