Default Dolphin and parrots

We went to a fishing pier on the Gulf and a pod of dolphins came in to feed.
After an hour or so watching them we headed to the car and heard the squawking of the parrots and had time to get a few shots. Not your typical series but what a day that was.

The orange things on their dorsal fin are a type of pseudo barnacle.

I am posting this mostly for a friend that is crazy about parrots and glad you could join me.

What a day, is right! Always a treat to see dolphins. I see them off our coast sometimes but never this close. Love the first parrot shot, what a clown!

What fun! Did the dolphins try to steal your catch?

Neat shots. Love the spurting water from the dolphin and the crazy parrot "bottoms up".
