Nature and Nurture


A leisurely breakfast for some friends we had staying was interrupted by a pod of around 20 or so Harbour Dolphins tracking around the Sound of Sleat North East towards Armadale.

Work precluded nipping down to the beach to get closer shots so images were taken with a telephoto lens from the house and then cropped further.

Second time in the last few days that the dolphins have been spotted.  The last time I was cutting the grass so did not have a camera to hand to capture their grace – even from distance.

As they came around the headland to the South East of our house they speeded up a little and were breaking the water a little more.

This sequence seems to show a mum with calf in close attendance. Clearly a case of nature doing it’s own nurturing. Very pleasant start to the day but unfortunately work remains and the keyboard is calling.
