In the blue. An easily identified Short-beaked common dolphin is investigating me. Note the cut in its dorsal fin! 
Mostly desk work after the Azores where i took this image 3 weeks ago - and in this autumn 2 new books will be published, one of my major books will be published in English - and in other countries as well. So autumn books galore. AND new exciting photo-projects are about to begin.
