Common dolphins, Monterey Bay, California

common_dolphins

Common dolphins (delphinis) are not seen in the Monterey Bay too often, but last summer (July 2014) they were present as anchovy bait balls were near the shore and the Monterey Bay had warmer currents.  The dolphins, like the humpback whales and sea lions, were enjoying feasting on anchovies.  These dolphins were moving extremely quickly but surfaced to breathe at the same time, creating a cool photo opportunity.

Technical Details:  Canon 7D, Canon 100-400L
