Dolphin Sunset

As I was photographing the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico, we were treated to a surprise visit from a family of dolphins swimming by. I wanted to capture an image with the setting sun behind them, so I had to take a couple of shots, then run like a mad woman to stay ahead of them... repeatedly.

Mom and dad were cruising in front, with the baby bringing up the rear. In this shot, the baby appears to be peaking at me... probably puzzled by the crazy human, who was running wildly after them down the beach.
