Spinner Dolphin in action
A Spinner Dolphin leaps into the air - spinning as it does - before splashing back into the water. It was hard to get a good picture with the SD850 IS point & shoot camera and this is the best I got. I'd preset the camera, wait for the first sign of a jump and quickly point and shoot, but the lag in the shutter, camera motion, dolphin motion and incorrect focus all conspired against me. This image was taken at 1/500 seconds with an exposure of f/5.6, ISO 80.
