Four dolphins leap through the air as they frolick in the sea off the coast of Scotland.

A pod of around ten dolphins delighted wildlife watchers by playing close to their boat off Inner Moray Firth on Scotland's north east coast.

Sarah Pern, from the nearby port of Cromarty, in the Highlands, captured the image while leading a two-hour boat trip as a skipper for her wildlife tour company EcoVentures.
