600 Pounds Hitting The Beach, Dolphin

These photographs were taken standing of the left side of a Dolphin while strand feeding.

At the end of driving fish to shore a Dolphin may flip their tail, create a whirl pool in the water, or simple charge head first.

Confused schools of fish ultimately get pushed to shallows, or right on the shore.

Here a Dolphin splashed his tail, pushed fish, then followed on the shore.

Dolphins will hit the shore on their right side. In theory knowing this helps a photographer to be in the right location for the shot. You have something that weighs maybe 1,000 pounds, 13 feet long, and flying suddenly out of the water… just get the shot best you can.

BTW, never too close, since you don’t know exactly where they will come ashore. They are surviving, feeding, we need to respect their environment.
