Monday with a sunfish

Today it was a little bit wet with some fresh wind and waves during our morning observation. Since we left the marina we encountered only common dolphins, and alot of splashes here and there. Then just as we were returning to Ponta delgada we were surprised when we saw an intereseting fin. At first it looked like a shark but it was in fact a sunfish (Mola mola), the largest bony fish in the world! We stopped the boat to have a look and the fish seemed to be interested in us, enough for us to be able to get some nice photos.
