In the 1st photo, is it the angle or is the head shaped differently on the lead dolphin ?

Yeah, the lead also has 2 xtra fins under his chin. Must be different species.

The second dolphin appears to have a very pointed nose? Also there is something extending from just below the nose of the second one to right behind the eye of the lead one that appears to be a fin?

Okay guys....Now I'm spending way too much time staring at this picture....First of all another excellent picture from the Elbert Forum....Thank you for posting.

Notably I am not a Dolphin Expert and it did take me a minute to see all four....However the other variations could just be how they tell each other apart....Right?

....Getting a kick out of this thread....

Not a pointed nose but a fade-out of the bottle-nose into the body of the proximate dolphin.

I spent some bucks on a very good monitor since i spend so much time here and do the photography thing. Its a flat screen Dell.
I'm still looking for an upgrade or better model. Seems like a worthy investment.

a good monitor, well ain't much better when it comes to work!! i think having two monitors is a very efficient way to operate. park things on the second monitor, work on the first. its like a real desktop!

Thank you Marty; However I must ration myself...I think this pic is becoming a borderline obsession.

Like MonaLisa smiling at you as you walk across the room. :-)
I wonder if they always look like they are smiling or maybe its like the joker?

Big Screens are great also. We're here a lot so why not spend some of that money you bury in the back yard.
