Bay Dolphins

20120501 - Not seen every day, these dolphins where seen leaping and fishing of the beach in Hobsons Bay a northern part of Port Phillip bay. There was about a dozen dolphins split  into two groups. The area of the bay is close to a reef of rocks. So I think they were fishing....

Fins and leaping....

More leaping dolphins....

This appears to being fishing behaviour, a row of dolphins travelling near the surface...
