This is the moment of birth of a baby dolphin.

Quote:
Normally after a year-long pregnancy, captive dolphins give birth at night and away from the public gaze.

But this Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) unusually gave birth in broad daylight and close to a viewing window so that photographer Leandro Stanzani had a grandstand view.

@Robert Gentel,
When the time is right, there's no stopping a birth!
