Beetle Kite Attracts Dolphins

by Gavin S.

I have a fantastic story for you!

I am a shift worker, just finished my shift so I hope this makes sense as I am very sleepy...

I purchased a lady beetle kite that you reviewed on a past video. What a great kite in the air, it looks awesome!

I was on holidays on the weekend, just gone, and I flew the kite from the front of my motel, with my family. As it was on the beach I had many admirers, but there were some other admirers that came to the party.

A pod a dolphins... they must have seen the kite somehow and came for a closer look.

I have a big reel so it's easy to wind quickly if I have to. I brought the kite in so as not to scare the creatures but they went under water so I let the kite out a bit and they came back up.

The dolphins were so close to the shore like they were trying to tell us something.

We told the locals about it whilst at dinner and they said dolphins never come up here. Maybe it was the kite! Not sure but it was something else!

Five-kite rating for uniqueness! Thanks for sharing that experience. Might not happen again unless someone else copies you in the near future, in the same location.

I often notice birds attracted to my kites - but a pod of dolphins? Like you say - that's really 'somethin else'!
