A wild Bottlenose Dolphin rises to breath near Molokini in Maui County waters. These moments spent in the company of wild marine mammals never fail to wow me. I'm thankful for each of these brief glimpses into the lives of creatures that will forever hold a place dear to my heart.
A small puppy wandered up to U.S. Marines from Alpha Company, 1st Battalion 6th Marines, in Marjah, Afghanistan. After following the Marines numerous miles, a soft hearted Marine picked the puppy up and carried the puppy in his drop pouch.
