Risso’s Dolphins were frolicking off The Sea Ranch.

John Batchelder saw a pod of what he thought were dolphins or perhaps Killer Whales. They were Risso's Dolphins and many were breaching. Using his long lens, John got these photos.

The more scars, the older the dophin is. Here is a close-up of a Risso's Dolphin taken by Ron LeValley.
