Melanie P., I'd say 'thank you' in dolphin squeaks if I could.

So... so OK, how...?

I mean, they... just... holy crap did you $%@^!*& SEE that!???

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:41 AM

Man! How do they DO that?!?!? I loved the one shot where the bubble looked like a halo over the dolphin's head. St. Dolphinus!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:41 AM

That's awesome!
*spazzes with Jill*
Sondheim! And dolphins!
And bubbles!!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:43 AM

Baroo?! DOLPHINS ROCK! That's a real neat trick, and they look so dang happy doing it!

we must have some CO/Metafilter cross-over here. Saw this yesterday on Mefi, and my first thought was "OMG I must forward this to CO...oh wait, I bet someone already has...."

THANKS, "someone." Everyone should see this video. I don't understand how we can live in a world with war and terror and whatnot, with beautiful scenes like this to ponder.

*shuffles off to sit under tree*

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:48 AM

I personally have just been hearing all the violent, and "human" things dolphins can do that we are just learning about. I like this better, lol! Sweet peaceful dolphins = yes. Violent baby killers = no.

Thanks CO!!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:48 AM

WOW... Just....WOW.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:49 AM

Wow, that is a beautiful video, I also love the music!

Holy Cuteness
 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:50 AM

Very cool! I hadn't seen this before, either. Now I want to find a place they do this regularly and see it in person!


 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:51 AM

Wow-- Animals other than humans (specifically dolphins) can create.

This is mindblowing.

And beautiful!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:51 AM

I want to know why the bubbles don't immediately float to the surface! What are they made of ... "heavy" air?

Julia (the one in BC)
 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 08:53 AM

rachel cullen--The song is an instrumental version of No One Is Alone from Into the Woods.

By Sondheim.


 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:00 AM

That may be the most beautiful, magical thing I've ever seen, and the music was perfect. Thank you, thank you, thank you...

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:02 AM

ok......ok....umm, yeah. what the...
what are.....umm, how do they.....bubble hoops? OMG.
and Sondheim!
oh, man.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:07 AM

So beautiful, so relaxing, I wish it was longer...

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:15 AM

"Who can make the sun shine? Sprinkle it with dew..." The music reminded me of the candy man song.

Sorry, I guess I'm just incoherent from watching such spectacularly cute dolphin-bubble footage. Dive dive dive! *jumps in tank*

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:19 AM

How anyone can still think of dolphins (and other cetaceans) as 'lesser animals' after seeing something like this baffles me.

And yes, SONDHEIM! on CO! my Monday is complete... :)

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:24 AM

thanks Jill!!!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:24 AM

I love dolphins! Beautiful (and cute) video.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:27 AM

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:28 AM

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! *claps with alarming enthusiasm*

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:35 AM

Oh my goodness...doesn't that just make you smile??
Perfect for a Monday morning! Thank you!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:37 AM

I want to be a dolphin.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:43 AM

Dolphins are so much more beautiful than us.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 09:44 AM

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:00 AM

Absolutely Beautiful. I Love How It Splashed To Make A New Bubble. ;0)

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:08 AM

Here's a link I found that explains the dolphin ring thing a bit: http://www.earthtrust.org/delrings.html

It has some science-y jargon that I couldn't really focus on, but it sounds like it's basically the energy created by the rings' spinning that keeps them from rising to the surface immediately. So cool!

Aw, I lubs dem. Someday I must pet a dolphin...

A thinker
 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:28 AM

"impossibubble?" Nah -- INCREDIBUBBLE!!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:31 AM

We saw the dolphins do this at Sea World in Orlando. They would blow the ring out their blow hole and then race through it or bite it. It was amazing!

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:35 AM

bees on pie: thanks for the link! This is one time that the scientific explanation doesn't destroy the magic.

I really need to get some housework done, but I keep wandering back to my computer to watch this again (and again and again). Like Liz, I find myself with tears streaming down my face from the sheer beauty.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:36 AM

I'm knocked out! I've never seen anything like it. Tears streaming down my face.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:42 AM

That was so beautiful, it made me cry. Therious.

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:50 AM

Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic!

Great joyous , glorious, life-affrirming googly-ooglies!

And the best link ever, bees on pie;


 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 10:56 AM

If you pause the video at 21 seconds, you can see a rock shaped like a human profile in the background.

Amazing video!!

I must be feeling extra emotional today.

That gave me chills and made me tear up at the same time.

Just amazing.

Sleeping Mommy
 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 11:06 AM

 |  Jan 21, 2008 at 11:17 AM
