Stunning Photo from the Ocean

There are some photos that take your breath away. This photo from Hawaii is UNBELIEVABLE.
A bottlenose dolphin is captured on film hitching a ride on the nose of a humpback.
Remarkable images were captured in two locations in Hawaiian waters of whales lifting dolphins out of the water with their heads, and then the dolphins sliding back down.
The two species seemed to co-operate in the activity, and neither displayed signs of aggression .
Whales and dolphins in Hawaiian waters often interact, but playful social activity such as this was extremely rare between species.We can only hope that such sights will one day be seen in New Zealand waters. I might have to cease being #2 at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast and become a seafarer again !
