Incredible photos ~ I will definitely be watching ~ If it's anything like the "Spy in the jungle" series which was about wild tigers, it will be brilliant! Thanks Cher

It's not the first one filmed.
I have one of a 7 mile long, Mega Pod, that consisted of tens of thousands. ^_^

Amazing site!

Wow it would be wonderful to see such a mega pod of dolphins. Learned something new, why they spin!!
I love dolphins and the way they can chat back and forth. They are so intelligent!!
Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures - loved to see that tuna also.
