Waiting Game – 📸 by Peter Lorimer

Quoted from the Daily Telegraph article –

“At first the pod of dolphins looked like any other but closer inspection revealed a straggler with a terrible bite out of its back and a shark in close pursuit. The dolphins initially circled their injured mate but as the shark moved in and the injured animal grew weaker they scattered.

After a few slow, wide circles the shark lunged, tearing another chunk of flesh from just above the dolphin’s tail.

There was no feeding frenzy. Instead, the shark hung back, seemingly waiting until the dolphin died before moving in to feed”
