Risso's Dolphins. 5th.March 2012
« on: March 06, 2012, 07:47:52 am »
I heard that there was three Risso's at Catfirth, I heard late on Sun.the 4th.

The next morning I drove south to Catfirth, when I arrived I met with Austin Taylor.. He was just leaving..

So I set up my camera and long lens on my tripod..

The animals were swimming back and forward in front of me..

Two always kept close, but the other one kept its distance.. Then the one that kept its distance started to slapping its tail a few times
then threw itself clear of the water for about six times, I don't know if it was happy or showing off, but it was amazing watching it..

I used up all my space on my flash/card.. So I made my way home, then i remembered that I had my sony-nex with my 400mm lens attached, but by this time I was nearly home..
