Looked at the sequence of photos for this, and just loved how the dolphin is following the surfer so closely. Just brilliant must of been an awesome experience.

PROSURFER, you're being a such a wank. No one actually likes the taste of dolphin because it naturally has a bland/sour taste and a very chewy consistency.

Hi Mares. I am studying zoology and am a member of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group. I have been monitoring Bottlenose dolphins (The species in your photographs) which are resident in Cork Harbour for the past 3 years. It might be possible to match up these animals... if you could send me any other photos that you have of the animals and the date/location I would really appreciate it. Also the IWDG have expressed interest in using some of these shots for public awareness of whales and dolphins in Ireland and the need to conserve their habitats. Due credit will be given if/when your photos are used. Thanks, Conor Ryan: e-mail: brillo@post.com
