Let the Games Begin

Last year the Humpback Whales were playing mind games with me. They would lure me out into deep water then circle in behind me, keeping just far enough away to make a good photograph impossible.

This morning a pod of Spinner Dolphins was getting me ready for upcoming whale season. Near the end of my ocean workout they did a quick swim-by. Just enough for me to get off these two grainy photos and nothing more. As I rested on the beach they returned and stayed, playing just far enough out that I wasn't tempted to try and reach them. But they stayed. And stayed. And stayed. Finally, I couldn't take it any more and swam out to meet them. I got about ten yards away from them and they turned and casually swam away up the current. What teases!

Just in time, too. Whales were sighted both yesterday and today. Let the mind games begin.
