Playful animals, dolphins are known to swim past humans with "toys" to share. This particular Bottlenose dolphin zoomed past me and released this piece of seaweed in my proximity. I snatched it and swam futiley after him, waving the seaweed, trying to show how much I wanted to play. He looked back and swam off, disgusted with my inefficient stroke.
