Herding Fish Alone, Dolphin

Most of my Dolphin articles have been groups fishing together. I do have a series of photographs never published of a single Dolphin spinning/splashing schools of fish.

The Dolphin below swam close to the shore slowing pushing fish forward.

A short distance further, when they were grouped up he quickly spun around them in a fast tight circle.

When he had them bunched close enough he almost had a whirlpool.

Splashing with his tail he pushed them towards shore.

And caught them.

They don’t always strand these fish either. If they have enough of a circle and whirlpool made slamming their tail down stuns the fish and they are caught that way also.
