A pod of more than 40 dolphins have been spotted off the coast of Cornwall – with this cheeky chap even smiling for a photo.
The Risso's dolphin, distinguished by its bulbous head and bulky anterior body, was spotted lifting itself out of the water with what looked like a grin on its face.
Marine Discovery worker Hannah Jones took the picture while on board their catamaran with colleague Duncan Jones last Friday near Lamorna Cove.
She said: "We have seen Risso's dolphins before – that's the second time this year and we would expect to see them two or three times a year – but this was exciting.
"Seeing that number is really good."
It is believed the dolphins were drawn into shore by an abundance of fish.
