I was out on a dive excursion in the Bahamas in June 07 and the boat came to a stop and suddenly this dolphin just popped up from the water as if to say "Hi, welcome to the Bahamas". I quickly picked up my Canon 5d camera with my shaking hands and was rewarded with this image. I refer to this as "PhotoKarma".
