Dolphins - you've got to love them

I took these photos of dolphins feeding and playing in the surf from the restaurant at Seaview about a year ago. I have not edited the pictures at all and published them just as they were taken.

They were shot from quite a distance and show them surfing and then beating a hasty retreat, just before the wave breaks.


What is it about these amazing animals that attracts our attention? I can watch them for hours

No time to waste , co when you have to go, you have to go!


And this is what they were so intent on avoiding

Its always great to see the dolphins, being it on the main beachfront or out at Seaview. When I used to guide I passed there at least once a week and a couple of times saw the dolphins surfing from to top of the hill close to Maitlands.
