An Australian woman riding her horse through the water early one morning had an unexpected visitor, when a dolphin sidled up next to her to check the pair out. Melissa Bain, who works in a stable in Victoria, took this stunning photo on a morning walk with her horse, Cardiac, and posted it to Facebook. And this isn't the first time, either -- Bain says it's normal for dolphins to investigate riders.
"They tend to pop up when it's calm and sunny," she told Australia's Herald Sun. "I just happened to be in the right place at the right time for that photo and it all came together."
