Warrnambool woman Coralee Askew says she was in the right place at the right time when she snapped a photo of dolphins frolicking at Logans Beach on Thursday afternoon about 2pm.
Ms Askew says she was “very lucky” to capture the moment, and she described the dolphins interacting with a southern right whale mother and calf pair as well.
Meanwhile, southern right whale mother and calf pairs have remained active around Warrnambool this week, and there were other southern right whale sightings at Portland and Lorne.
Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning senior biodiversity officer Mandy Watson identified the mother whales frequenting Logans Beach as ‘Thin Lips’ and ‘Big Lips’, who were both around during the 2013 season.
Ms Watson said there had also been a spike in the number of humpback whales seen along the coast in the past week as part of their annual migration up to northern Queensland waters.
