Channel the Energy of the Dolphin! #WildlifeWednesday


Today is dolphin day, and these frenetic swimmers are on my mind as we kick off spring! They are constantly on the go, quite literally. Did you know only half of a dolphin’s brain sleeps at a time?! If I were to adopt the powers of any creature on the planet, that’s a fairly enticing one. Imagine how many more books I could get done if I could stay awake and just shut down half my brain at a time!

Of course, they have developed this ability for specific reasons. Dolphins breath air and their breathing is consciously controlled. In some ways that seems like a restless life, but they certainly make the most of it with their agile swimming and dexterous leaps.

Enjoy the photos from a past trip to Baja and the Sea of Cortez, and leave a comment below if there is an animal superpower YOU would love to have!

    Nature is circular. How much submerged dolphins with sunlight on their backs resembles giraffe markings. Uncanny!!

    I would harness the superpower of Alaskan Husky sled dogs! They are really amazing endurance athletes!

    I would love to come back as a cat, either domesticated or wild. Size doesn’t matter either. My fantasy trip would be to travel the world and photograph the different species & watch their interactions in their world.
