This amazing picture was taken on a whalewatching cruise off San Diego on Thursday. Apparently it's the biggest known "mega-pod" of common dolphins ever seen. The captain described it as an unthinkable seven miles long and five miles wide, estimated the number at 100,000. I remember encountering a megapod when we went out in 2009, scores of dolphins zooming by like stitches on a sewing machine, but that will have been as nothing compared to this enormous convocation...
