Two Dolphins in Love in Milford Sound

Back to Normally Scheduled Broadcasting

Now that the crazy two weeks has ended, we will begin regular broadcasts of the Trey’s Variety Hour. They appear here live on the blog every Monday night at 7 PM PT, 10 PM ET. And they’re all available to watch afterwards on!

Daily Photo – Two Dolphins in Love in Milford Sound

While we took the boat out of Milford towards the Tasman Sea, a pod of bottle-nose dolphins came to visit. They turned and jumped and spiraled in a double helix, twisting endlessly like a playful cyclone.

    Sorry:> went over board

  • LOL there were plenty of Photog’s on hand to capture THAT event if it happened. 😉

  • Awww, how sweet. That had to be so awesome to watch!! Thanks for sharing, Trey!!!!

  • Yes, I do Susan!!!

    I think they are porpoise. Dolphins and porpoise are both mammals but there is a difference.

  • Very nice capture sir! I like how the dolphins (or porpoises) kind of blur out towards the foot of the image as if they are part of a pastel drawing which has been smudged – nice effect indeed! Also got to say i thought the astrophotography photot from a few days ago was incredible – I had a bash at that a few weeks ago and it went horribly wrong, reminding why I hadn’t touched my camera gear in so long haha!
