In the language from where this beautiful creature came from:

Tão bonito!
Engraçado como em inglês se usam três palavras para falar de um animal que chamamos simplesmente de "boto".
Belíssimas criaturas, cercadas de lendas por aqui!
Muito bonita essa foto!
Parabéns!

Cheers!
God bless you endlessly!

Did you know that there is a legend about an incubus, and its daytime disguise is a river dolphin. At night he turns into a handsome man, and the only way to tell if hes an incubus is to remove his hat and chack if he has a blowhole in his head~!

I don't comment on much, but this time I just have to:

What a fascinating image. The colours are beautiful, vivid and clear with a wide range within the pallette.

The cropping really brings attention to the animal without giving it that boring 'I AM A PERFECTLY SPLIT IN HALF IMAGE 8D' feel, and the position of the dolphin is so unusual, I love the play of light on her body and the different textures on her head and beak. Not your typical dolphin shot, you should be really proud of this one! <3

Oh thank you Zed-sama :iconcheetahlaplz:
I am grateful I got to finally see this species of dolphin. The lighting was very dark but worked well I suppose, lucky my camera is good enough to not get a lot of noise with a higher ISO too :)
