Amazon river dolphin (Inia geoffrensis), Rio Negro, Amazonas, Brazil<br />
I thought if I ever had a chance to photograph a river dolphin, it would be wary and in the turbid Amazon waters the chances for success would be mediocre at best. I found that these dolphins had been habituated by local fishermen.  As soon as I entered the water I was beseiged by these guys.  They were bumping into me wanting a pet (as well as a treat) and completely gregarious.  The best I could do was push them away, get off a wide angle shot, and then they would be back on me again.
