 These pictures were taken during a recent trip to look for blure sharks (Prionace glauca) off the north coast.  Although we did find one blue, we had no luck with pictures (next time!).  However we did come across a large group of common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) feeding.  Each summer substantial numbers of commons dolphins can be found around the coasts of Devon and Cornwall as they follow the mackerel shaols.  Hopefully I’ll be adding to these images this summer.  As ever, these images can be licenses for reproduction and are also available as fine art prints.  Email me , telling me the image number and what you require for further details. You can also search for additional images either from my main website homepage or using my Photoshelter website. Links for both are given in the sidebar.
