Who is watching who

Today's morning tour was full of common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins playing around and surfing the waves - together. It was a beautiful sight, even though we got pretty splashed by the Atlantic Ocean. Everybody on board became experts on common dolphins and at recognizing them, as we encountered several groups, and the dolphins showed us why they are "common". The common dolphins of today, sometimes looking almost golden in the sunshine, really are the "dolphin of the dolphins".
