Fin whales everywhere

Today was one of those busy days on the sea when you don't know where to look because there are whales in all directions. We had at least three fin whales out there, and three species of dolphins: common dolphin, bottlenose dolphin and Risso's dolphin. The sea was flat and calm and the air warm. With one of the fin whales we had an interesting note as it had a group of  bottlenose dolphins playing around it, or maybe annoying it. As a result we got to see a part of the whale's fluke coming up in the air. A beautiful display, but it makes you wonder what is going on, what is the whale thinking, and the dolphins? What were the dolphins doing around the whale?
