Porpoise

A bit grainy, couldn't get a real good close-up and had to crop, and don't have that zoom that will let me see down to their tonsils but it was exciting seeing them and take pictures all the same. It's the first time for me from a boat. Sometimes when we have been walking along the shore at Virginia Beach, we have seen them swimming a little way off the beach. That is always an awesome experience. The captain announced over the loudspeaker that they were there.


In the picture below you can just about make out two fins right in the middle of the photo.
And then they were gone.

They are soooooo hard to capture at all. I keep trying. Glad somebody else is trying too.

Hi Leedra, thank you and always trying here :)

Hi Erin, I know what you mean. I had a problem last year but not this time and it was even choppier, go figure :)
