The Story of a  Big Dolphin Named Butterfly

Nan Bowles, 05 September 2012

Butterfly was first photographed by Keith Rittmaster, Natural Science Curator at the North Carolina Maritime Museum, on the 31st of December 1993.  He was seen in our Beaufort, NC waters along the ocean shore of Shackleford Banks. For the next 19 years we almost always saw Butterfly in the presence of his friend Onion.
