This is the season to see real "flying porpoises" in the Santa Barbara Channel, and I lucked out and snapped this pic recently of a young "Top Gun" showing off to his mom.

No bad guy sharks wanted anything to do with this little spunkster.

That these are acrobatic is the whole point that that they are dolphins and not porpoises.

Not many realize how vulnerable sharks, even big Great Whites, are to dolphins! There's a really crazy drone video somewhere of 2 Orcas rounding up and killing a very large white shark. The sea is full of wonders, thank you for sharing this!
