Recently, the waters of several beaches along the state of California experienced an eye-catching natural phenomenon which saw the waves glowing a bright blue. Caused by microscopic organisms capable of synthesizing light to evade predators, the colourful display can be quite rare. Luckily for some locals, they were on hand to witness it.
Local photographer Patrick Coyne captured an amazing video from a boat that showed dolphins swimming through the blue waves. According to Patrick, to be able to find the animals at night and also catch them aglow in the bioluminescence was a once in a lifetime event.
