Dolphins Strand Feeding

Dolphins Strand Feeding: Success

After the fishless stranding of my last post, I was fortunate to witness another strand feeding with the fish jumping wildly.

Three Dolphins had driven the fish to shore and the fish did their best not to become lunch.

The next photo is heavily cropped, but I wanted to show a closeup of the Dolphin – fish encounter. I’m not certain the Dolphin got this one, but it seems likely.

The frenzy only lasts a few seconds, then the Dolphins roll/flop back into the water, continuing to splash with their tails.

    1. Thanks! I’ve never heard of that happening, but I suppose it is possible. It wouldn’t be for long because the tide would eventually refloat them. The swirl that you can see in the water as they start to strand makes it clear there is a lot of power in what they are doing.

    1. It sure is! Noise, I hadn’t thought of that. You can sometimes hear that this is about to happen as the Dolphins start to torpedo through the water close to shore, and there is some from the water flailing about, but it is over in a matter of 10 seconds. I’ll have to pay more attention to that next time.
