Amazing Photography: Dolphin Giving Birth

Dolphins usually give birth during night time in private, not this dolphin apparently. According to Telegraph UK, “This Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) unusually gave birth in broad daylight and close to a viewing window so that photographer Leandro Stanzani had a grandstand view. The calf emerged tail first – so it does not breathe in water – and was able to see and swim immediately. The calf began feeding very quickly taking in the vital colostrum which allows it to build up its immune system.

It’s just beautiful.
