The dolphins were active, coming close to the pier. They were stealing the fish from the fishing lines. People were not happy that the dolphins were stealing the fish off their lines. You’d see a guy realizing he had something on his line. He’d start to reel it in and then you’d see the dolphin coming up behind it. When the guy reeled in his line the fish and bait fish were gone. I wonder if the dolphins swallow the hooks. Does it bother them? They eat whole fish with bones and all so I guess it’s okay as long as they don’t get it stuck in their mouth. People on the pier get mad at the dolphins but hey, they are the ones stealing the dolphin’s food.
Dolphin on the bottom right flipping his tail as the boat goes by. The gulls were going after any trailing bait fish that was left behind when they pulled up their nets onto the boat.
Everybody wants to hitch a ride in a boat, including snowy egrets. They were probably hoping the guys would turn their back on the bait fish they just pulled up in their boat.
‘Hey, get your own boat!” says the snowy egret on the motor.
Another beautiful Saturday morning at Fort Desoto.
Love the photos of both the dolphins and the snowy egrets; I thought your aside on who owns the fish was quite appropriate.
HI Dina It is so lovely to see Dolphins so close adn great shots. The Egrets looked good too. Have a great weekend. Margaret
I’d way rather watch dolphins at work and have something else for dinner!
Good pickings for the dolphins and the gulls! Great shots.
Love the cute dolphins and the Snowy Egrets on the boat is a great photo. Happy weekend to you!
I also love to watch dolphins, and your shot of the snowy egret on the motor is fabulous. Thanks for the fun, Dina.
Wow so cool to see them up close!
Great dolphin shots! They are a little naughty to steal the fish from the line but I guess the waters are their territory. Thanks for sharing.
The dolphins are adorable!
