These fascinating pictures show a bottlenose dolphin tossing a whole salmon up in the air and gobbling it up in one go.
Amateur photographer Alister Kemp, 51, watched on as the mammal feasted on the migratory salmon in the North Sea.
And he managed to take a number of snaps as the hungry dolphin tucked into its fish supper at Chanonry Point on the Moray Firth on the weekend.
He said: “I took these photos this weekend at Chanonry Point on the Moray Firth.
“The salmon have started to appear in greater numbers in the past few weeks which in turn brings the dolphins in to feed.
“Chanonry point is a favourite place for these dolphins to feed in the summer months.”
Alister, who works for a whisky distillery near his home in Evanton, Ross and Cromarty, regularly takes pictures of the dolphin population.
He added: “I am a keen amateur and I spend a lot of time capturing the behaviour of these dolphins.”
