A pod of dolphins have been caught on camera off the Dorset coast cutting through the waves.
Anya Parkhouse shot the footage from a boat at the weekend as the dolphins made their way alongside it.
She she saw around 30 dolphins near Hengistbury Head on Sunday afternoon.
In May, lone sailor Michael Ellis captured a playful pod on his mobile phone, as he sailed from Christchurch towards Studland.
Michael said: "I was about a mile out, probably opposite Boscombe, and I saw this pod of dolphins. I’ve never seen dolphins like this before and I’ve been sailing a long time.
“I moved closer and closer and eventually they went around me, under me, alongside. I followed them all the way along Poole Bay into Poole, for the best part of an hour."
Earlier this year a solitary dolphin famous for travelling long distances was spotted near the Dorset coast.
