Intoxicating Encounter with a Dall’s Porpoise – 16/10/15

Intoxicated anew . . . it will never get old, this place, its wild beauty and how every day anew there is more to learn and marvel at. Here, a Dall’s Porpoise speeding along in the October sun. They can travel at speeds up to 55 km / hour so it is a rarity to have the good luck to “capture” their beauty like this.
