Camera Critters #6; More Dolphins

Yesterday was spent cruising the Swan River.

The forecasted high winds did not eventuate and it was a pleasant day spent with friends.

We were honoured by some special visitors who decided to play around the boat for a while.

I know I posted some dolphins a couple of weeks ago in cloudy, dull conditions. These were in sunshine and even closer so I feel they deserved a viewing here in Camera Critters. Katney has a list of more Camera Critter Bloggers.

  9. These photos are just beautiful. I grew up on the north east coast and the only thing we had following our boats were seagulls and sharks. I would have much preferred dolphins.

  10. Really cool that you could capture the dolphins!

  11. So beautiful and an excellent critters. we get them here, but i have never been close enough. Brilliant photography.

  12. you must have been quick! :)

  13. @ everyone, Thanks for the nice comments.

    @ Sandy, the Swan River is tidal and has large lake-like areas upstream – dolphins are quite common between Fremantle and Perth (12 miles) and I have have seen them a further three miles upstream from Perth. Google Swan River and look at the maps – it is quite impressive and up to 30 ft deep, if a little slow moving :)

    @ Truce, Yep, I had to be quick but it was made easier by being able to see them on their way up.

  14. Thank you how glorious for you all !!! sandy

  15. @ Sandy, yes. That is why those of us who live in Perth keep boring people about our Swan River – it is the biggest feature, the biggest playground that we have.

  16. your shots worked really well- well done. Thanks for a great day. interesting site will have to keep exploring.

  17. Thanks, it was a perfect day. Explore away :)
