Rare Pink Dolphin Spotted in Lake Calcasieu, Louisiana

Photograph via sloshyjacob on reddit

Redit user sloshyjacob recently shared a series of amazing photos his friend took of ‘Pinkie’ a rare pink dolphin known to frequent the waters of Lake Calcasieu, Louisiana.

For those wondering how a dolphin can possibly find its way and survive in a fresh water lake, Calcasieu connects to the Gulf of Mexico and actually consists of brackish or briny water which has more salinity than fresh water but not as much as seawater.

“Pinkie” is an albino bottlenose dolphin that was first spotted on June 24, 2007 by charter boat captain Erik Rue.

More recent sightings from 2015 captured “Pinkie” mating, confirming that the dolphin was female.

Bird Appears to Float Across Security Cam as Flapping Wings Sync with Frame Rate

In this short but interesting video a bird appears to float across this guy’s security cam because the bird’s flapping wings happened to perfectly sync with the camera’s frame rate. In his video description on YouTube he also added a brief FAQ:

– Camera: HIKVISION’s DS-2CD2342WD-I. 2688×1520 @ 20fps
– Yes it is a real bird. No I did not use strings
– No the footage is not edited. Yes I have YouTube slowing it down to make it easier to see
– Yes it is happening due to the capture frame rate matching the flap speed of the bird. No I did not adjust the camera for the bird
