While I was on a boat trip around Lord Howe Island, we had a brief visit from this Bottlenosed Dolphin. It seemed to have a wonderful ability to be on the opposite side of the boat to me at all times, so I only got one burst of pictures.
Still, I rather like them, especially the first one.
And yes, the water really was that colour! And there was not a cloud in the sky either!!
You can find more pictures of animals from around the world over at Saturday Critters.
