Dolphins

Dolphin watching in Mirissa.

Weather killed the whole moment though. Was raining hard, choppy waters made me roll all over the boat while trying to snap these pics and gloomy sky.... We were lucky to catch these fellows! And these curious fellows decided to swim along with us for a little while before bad weather do us apart...

    Sure the weather would have disappointed you so badly but still the shots you have posted look great. Some stats say March is the best for Mirissa trip. BTW Are these spinners?

    Thanks a lot for your kind words mate.
    Yes they are spinner dolphins if i'm not mistaken. Yeah, March apparently is a great month for dolphin watching in Mirissa. One of those days i guess.
    Hoping to go back there sometime and get even better shots! :-)
