I went out with a group today to take some photos around Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. The idea was to limit yourself to 36 photos. It was a fun event and the weather was wonderful. All of these were taken with my K-1 Mk II and FA43 Ltd.

We were at the beach when my wife spotted dolphins a few hundred yards offshore. I watched these, luckily I had my KP and 55-500PLM with me, I put it on burst and took lots of shots. Dolphins are not easy to shoot,when you see them it just about too late to get that shot, so a lot of machine gunning and anticipation was going on. I really didn't know what I would have until seeing them on the computer screen. I shot about 300 images, kept about 40. I had two frames that were pretty baffling. It looks like these dolphins have a ball. I thought maybe it was a droplet of water on the lens working some kind of prismatic effect. But they are not in the same place on the frame, there was another frame between them that it did not show u in, and in the second shot it seems to have a water trail following like it was propelled from the water. I guess I need to go back and seach the other frams and make sure I didn't miss it. These are really heavily cropped.



Here's and uncropped photo with six dolphin in it.

Thanks for hosting, nosliwmit.
These cropped images were captured through the glass of a sliding door with a Pentax K-S2 and older smc Pentax-F 1.4.5-5.6 100-300mm.

Looks like you're starting to get some fall colors there.

Nice ones Tom! In normal years we spend a few weeks in Florida in the summer and usually we'll see dolphins once or twice off shore. Never seen them playing with a ball though!

I love blue jays. They're gorgeous and they have a lot of personality. Thanks for sharing!

Great photos this week Noel! I'm not sure I've seen a Hyrax before. The finch and the portrait are winners, as is your bokeh shot.

Thanks to all who participated!

I'll get the next POTW started now...
