A brave group of dolphins jump gleefully above the waves right in front of a giant 73,000 ton container ship. The playful animals propel themselves high into the air using the huge boat's bow wave. On what was an otherwise calm day with few waves, the dolphins took advantage of those created by the massive 984ft long German freighter. Fortunately, the magical moment wasn't missed as commercial marine photographer Richard Steinberger was on board a nearby boat.
