Dolphin Leaps Out of Sea with Jellyfish As a Hat!



Quote:
This playful dolphin seems to have entered into the spirit of the British seaside holiday by sporting a jellyfish in the style of a 'Kiss Me Quick' porkpie hat.
The energetic mammal proudly emerged from the sea off Scotland with a jellyfish jauntily balanced on its head.
The bottlenose dolphin then seemed to have a change of heart about his choice of iconic headgear, because he shook off the common jellyfish, which had stayed on his head as he came out of the water.

He promptly threw the probably-terrified jellyfish to a friend like a frisbee, while he and his playmates frolicked in the sea.
Photographer Chris Wilson, 46, watched the action at Chanonry Point, on the Moray Firth, near Inverness, Scotland

'At the end of the point there is an area where dolphins regularly congregate to hunt salmon and sea trout,' Mr Wilson, from Kingsteignton, Devon, said.

'On this occasion very few turned up but there were quite a lot of jellyfish in the water being washed past.
'Some of the dolphins were throwing them about but I could not tell if they were eating them or doing it for fun.
'The dolphins were in no way distressed by the jellyfish and several were even mothers with calves.'
The 'Kiss Me Quick... Squeeze Me Slowly' hats are a staple feature of the British seaside, along with saucy postcards, donkey rides and sticks of rock guaranteed to hurt your teeth.
But despite being a stalwart of the seaside souvenir in the 1970s, they have retained their popularity.
Even today they are a familiar sight, perched on top of the heads of holidaymakers who are busy munching on fish and chips while balancing on deckchairs on pebbly beaches.
