Fishing, Dolphin Style

This is a single photograph from a series of images I am working on now. Here 3 Dolphin charged a school of fish, driving them to the shore. The steep bank made it easier for the Dolphin  to follow the school in.

At least 2 have caught fish (click above to view full screen).

It is hard to capture just how explosive this strand feeding really is. However, consider each Dolphin is approximately 13 feet in length and look at the waves they have caused.

    1. Typically can start 1 hour before low tide until 1 hour after low tide. It is also based on the contour of the shore where they plan to push the fish. A steep incline allows them to roll on their side back into the water.

      Before any attack begins a Dolphin will patrol the waters edge, swimming very close. They look at the shore, land, and check for dangers (people). It is amazing to return the stare of a wild Dolphin while they check me out.
