Dolphin soccer

Well nearly. I went out to Sandpatches again yesterday and my favourite dolphin pod was there playing in the surf, leaping out of the water, and what appears to be hunting fish.

At one stage I thought a dolphin had caught a fish and had it in its mouth, shaking it. However when I photographed the dolphin it turned out to be a piece of seaweed. The dolphin (or maybe more than one was involved – very hard to tell) was catching it, throwing it up in the air, and chasing after it. They seemed to be having a lot of fun.

Here are some images.

This first image shows the piece of seaweed flung into the air by the dolphin.

There's one in every crowd! The dolphin with a seaweed wig!

Here he is playing with the seaweed.

He has thrown it into the air again.

And again it is thrown into the air.

And again it is thrown into the air.


The dolphin(s) was obviously playing some game with the seaweed. Very curious!
