"JOY OF THE DANCE" by Karen Wiles was chosen for publication in "OUR STATE MAGAZINE" in May!
Also,"JOY of the DANCE" is to be displayed as part of the Lower Cape Fear Exhibit at the Cape Fear Museum in Wilmington, North Carolina in 2013...
To capture an image such as this is a once in a lifetime for most photographers, especially in North Carolina. Wiles' considers the bottle nosed dolphin to be one of the hardest mammals on earth to photograph in their full deserved glory! Wiles dolphin image was published in the popular "Our State" magazine in May...
'JOY of the DANCE" was captured at sunset by boat in the Intracoastal Waterway near Wiles' home. With help from her husband who navigated the boat while she focused in and photographed the frolicking dolphins who actually seemed to enjoy the attention, she was able to get this incredible image...
Bottlenose dolphins are well known as the intelligent and charismatic stars of many aquarium shows. Their curved mouths give the appearance of a friendly, permanent smile, and they can be trained to perform complex tricks.
In the wild, these sleek swimmers can reach speeds of over 18 miles (30 kilometers) an hour. They surface often to breathe, doing so two or three times a minute. Bottlenose dolphins travel in social groups and communicate with each other by a complex system of squeaks and whistles. Schools have been known to come to the aid of an injured dolphin and help it to the surface.
Bottlenose dolphins track their prey through the expert use of echolocation. They can make up to 1,000 clicking noises per second. These sounds travel underwater until they encounter objects, then bounce back to their dolphin senders, revealing the location, size, and shape of their target.
