Spinner Dolphin between St. Helena and Ascension Islands

Upside down Spinner. We were traveling by ship between St. Helena and Ascension Islands on a mid-Atlantic re-positioning trip. We were traveling through some very deep water and there wasn't much wildlife. Suddenly this group of spinner dolphins appeared and I was able to capture one in mid-spin.
