On the same trip that yielded the bird and seascape shots from the last post, we encountered a pod of Bottlenose Dolphins. If you have not looked at that post, the boat trip was around the end of the Freycient Peninsula, with lunch at Wineglass Bay.
They came and played in the bow wave at the front of the boat - it was great to see them effortlessly keeping up with the boat and spinning in the waves.
The hull of the boat was very strongly curved, so the dolphins were actually back behind the line of the deck 'fence'. This meant I had to lean a rather long way out over the side of the boat to get these shots - to was not comfortable, and rather stomach churning to say the least.
You can see more animals from around the world at Saturday Critters (although it may not be Saturday with you yet, and if the truth be told it's still Thursday here!)
