One of the most exciting things about photographing pods of feeding Dolphin is watching and anticipating where the school of fish will be attacked. It’s almost never where you think, but to get the chase I at least try.
Because this pod can strand schools of fish a Dolphin will travel along the shore pushing fish. The deep slope of the sand makes it easy for them to be only a few meters away, a pain when using the required long lens.
An adult is about 13 feet (4 m ) in length, big enough to see them as the glide just under the surface.
This one turned away and went back out towards the others in the channel. he may or may not have also been pushing the fish towards them.
If he had made a sudden turn, especially to his left, it would have meant the push was on.
Not this time though.
