JUST SPLASHING ABOUT with some mates…

These action shots of Fungi, the evergreen ‘Dingle Dolphin’, were taken yesterday by Jeannine Masset and Rudi Schamhart of the ‘Fungi Forever’ Facebook group.

According to the photographers, the other dolphins had been in Dingle Bay “on several previous occasions over the years”.

“On other occasions during visits of other dolphins, he might hide near the rocks or defend his territory,” they say, but “these two were very welcome” and the three hung out and interacted “the whole day and evening”.
