Outstanding captures! I love these critters. For many years, as we plied the waters of Galveston Bay in our sailboat, we would be entertained by these wonderful creatures!

Good shots. They seem to spend a lot of time playing.

Wow! You are really close, judging from your focal lengths.

Well that depends.These images are cropped a bit as you need a wider FOV
because you never know where they are going to pop up. This channel is 200 metres wide
so they could be a 100 metres away or literally right under your feet.

I was looking at the EXIF focal length; not whether you cropped which I assumed. You were quite close. At least 1,100 miles closer to a dolphin than me.

And, I can't resist your sense of humor with the comment followed by a photo of a dolphin at your feet!
