Dolphins near the Smelter

I want to quickly share an article I’ve read a few minutes ago about a pod of dolphins in the vicinity of Tiwai Point aluminium smelter near Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand. This article (01 Feb) from the The Southland Times has wonderful photos of dolphins in the vicinity of the smelter – I thought you might enjoy it!

If you’d like to see stunning photography of dolphins throwing themselves up on a beach “fishing” (called strand feeding) then check out these amazing photographs taken by Ted Jennings in South Carolina, USA (this will display multiple posts that you can then click on individually to read):  Teds Dolphin Photos

    1. Hahaha! I was actually telling you I’d linked to you (in a comment) yesterday when your “like” came on-screen for the post, so I erased what I was writing. Then I thought you’d possibly not noticed anyway! How did you find out.. you saw traffic coming in from my post? I noticed in the stats some folks had gone from my page to yours 🙂
