*** Over the years we have taken hundreds of photos of BLUE DOLPHIN. None of the images have correctly captured the flowers' unusual color which can best be described as a bluish lavender. All of the images we have show more red coloration than is present when viewed in person. The images on this page represent the truest colors we have been able to obtain with unretouched photos.
