Catch of the day
One unusually chilly morning, while walking along a deserted shoreline in Stump Pass State Park, Florida, Jordan spotted a single dorsal fin surfacing just offshore. Then more and more fins sliced the surface. Sprinting down the beach, camera in hand, he headed waist-deep into the icy surf. 'I stood in awe, with my finger fixed to the shutter release,' says Jordan, 'while a pod of seven dolphins chased their breakfast - yellow snappers. The dolphins came closer and closer until they were just feet away.' The spell was broken by the appearance of a fishing boat that drifted through them. The pod dispersed and Jordan headed back to his car to review his pictures, still in awe of his experience.
