Surfacing

Yes, it’s more pictures from Tasmania!

This dolphin and its blowhole was part of a large pod in Adventure Bay on Bruny Island – there must have been at least 50. Unlike the usual mid-grey bottlenose I see occasionally around the NSW Coast, these were the Common Dolphin Delphinus delphis, also known as Saddleback Dolphin or White-bellied Dolphin or Criss-cross Dolphin or Hourglass Dolphin or Cape Dolphin.

Here’s a wider view giving an impression of just how many there were around us, and that was just on one side of the boat. (View Large)

Pod

I’ve put up some more dolphin pics on Flickr (view as slideshow – there’s not that many). They were just gorgeous.
