Dolphins at Manly

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 27 Apr 2011

Swimming with dolphins has to be high on the wish list for many people.  Gaetan Guilhon had the very good fortune to do just that at Manly Beach, Sydney, on a lovely April morning in 2011.   The footage shows a pod of about 50 Common Dolphins, Delphinus delphis.  Please don't tell me that dolphins aren't fish - I know that!  I was just so envious and excited I had to share this movie.  Enjoy!
