Surfing dolphins

More of the same!

Notice the baby dolphin in the centre of this shot

Aerial dolphins

After a week or so of cold, wet weather (OK cold by Dunsborough standards) yesterday afternoon was a welcome change. Moderate waves, a light easterly breeze just strong enough to blow the tops of the waves back a bit (this creates a nice billowing spray!), and the sun came out. So did the dolphins, and they were surfing, and just as they were about to get dumped they would leap out of the back of the wave. Very impressive, and a very enjoyable afternoon watching them. This first shot has seven dolphins in the air at once! The following shot shows the dramatic wave forms  (as well as dolphins).
