Dolphins are notoriously difficult to photograph when swimming as they go so fast. They love riding the bow wave of a boat and will play for a while before swimming away.
I photographed these two common dolphins (yes, there are two!) while out looking for Humpback Whales. They were part of a group that came in from the east; we could see them from a distance by looking at the disturbance in the water as the group porpoised towards us.
I set my camera to the highest speed it could handle and took a few images as one group came across our starboard side. The dolphin in the air is just touching the surface with its beak. Can you see the second dolphin? It’s fully submerged.
Dolphins are mammals and part of the whale (cetacean) family. Despite being the most common cetacean, it’s the bottle-nosed dolphin that people tend to think of. This is a shame because the common dolphin has lovely colouring.
