Everyone needs…

… a porpoise in life

or a dolphin or two! The dolphins put on a terrific show just outside Aberdeen harbour last week (pics taken on a Canon 650D camera at 1/640 seconds exposure and ISO 400, with a Tamron SP 150-600 Di VC USD zoom lens).

I was observing from the shore and this sequence was shot at f11 at 500mm…

If you are observing from a boat and not from the shore, then the rule is to let the dolphins encroach upon you and not for you to encroach upon them – the Aberdeen Harbour pilot boat got it very wrong!

These other pics were shot at f10 at 600mm…
