Riding on the Back of a Risso's Dolphin

I was able to catch a fleeting glimpse of this shy family of Risso's Dolphins (Grampus griseus) in the Santa Barbara Channel. Unlike other curious cetaceans, these dolphins won't often approach boats and tend to make themselves discrete whenever they can. This family disappeared moments after my shutter fired. I lucked out with this shot.
