Bottlenose Dolphins at the Jersey Shore

I’m not quite sure how common dolphin sightings are along the beaches of New Jersey…but I do know that this past August was the first time I saw dolphins while hanging out at the shore.  I snapped this shot of three bottlenose dolphins as they swam parallel to a short stretch of Point Pleasant Beach.  As they kept surfacing and going back under, you could see everyone on the beach looking around to see where they might pop up next.  For me, it was a pretty good exercise in keeping both eyes open behind the camera – one looking through the viewfinder and one scanning the waves for their short appearances.  They stuck around for a few minutes and then disappeared into the depths…or moved along to the next stretch of crowded beach.

    • I guessed as much, but it was cool seeing them for the first time.

      A nice hot beach day sounds pretty good to me, too!
