What can I say I like dolphins. This one is a Common Dolphin – part of a pod that visits Mornington Harbour, Mornington Peninsula.

Yanni has been capturing and documenting life and events on camera for three decades ever since his father gave him an old Pentax film SLR camera in 1982 .
He has also been working in digital art since the late nineties, from his graphic designs and collages to the complex photo realism of his sci fi / fantasy art.

    Is it not a hectare dolphin? It is a beautiful capture either way, fantastic! :-)

    I guess it’s hard to see properly from this pic but it is a Common Dolphin – there’s a small pod that regularly visits this particular area. I confirmed it with some cetacean experts also. Thanks for you comment.

    Ah – it was only because I visted NZ last year and thought that he dolphins with a light silver under belly were Hectares. It is an amazing shot!

    It would appear that I cannot even spell the name correctly! Hector was the dolphins I saw last year and they are very similar – I think I should just shut up, pay my compliment to your work and stop digging myself this huge hole! :-)
