positioned herself horizontally almost on the floor of the pool, and then moved her head upward, a quick jerking motion. At the same instant, she let out a large bubble that instantly formed itself into a perfect, lustrous bubble ring that looked like a silver halo, or even, as someone once observed, a miniature UFO. I
had heard anecdotal accounts of dolphins and whales blowing bubbles under different
circumstances, but I had never before seen it in action. It was a magical moment. Before Iâd had a chance to savor it fully, Shiloh blew another bubble ring. This one seemed to be a little smaller than the first, and it traveled upward faster. Within seconds the new ring had met with the first and, in a moment of undulating creativity, coalesced to form a much larger ring. Shiloh had been watching these events very carefully too, and as soon as the two rings became one, she quickly swam vertically
upward and passed through the hoop with an exaggerated flourish.
