This image of the "Kissing Manatees" is one of my all time favorites! I took this image in Crystal River, Florida on a very cold, wet and windy day in February when almost no-one else was out on the water. I was heading back to the boat to change my roll of film as I had only a few frames left to shoot, when I heard a loud "squeaking noise" coming from my right. I looked over to see a large manatee slowly swimming my way and vocalizing continuously. Off in the distance to my left I began to hear another manatee vocalizing back and approaching in our direction. They bee-lined straight towards each other and the closer they got, the louder their vocalizations became. They came together, lips to lips, as if giving each other a giant kiss, and then slowly swam off into the distance. I could hear them "squeaking" for many minutes long after they were gone from my sight. I marveled at the wonderful encounter I just witnessed, and to this day I still smile when I think of it. What a beautiful and one of a kind image I was rewarded with on that day! How lucky I was!
