Playful mate by RoieG Playful mate by RoieG
That's the Dusky Dolphin, the most playful Dolphin of all.
They jump endlessly with amazing tricks for fun and for communication and socialization with other dophins.

The image was taken in Kaikoura, New Zealand

Perfect timing on this one, well captured! Was this just 300mm or did you use a 1.4x tc?

Dusky dolphins are my favorite species of dolphin. And you did a great job capturing this guy jumping.

Great picture, just a pity that you didnt get the shot a second earlier when the dolphin was head up!
I love dusky dolphins, and I want to move to New Zealand in several years.
