A happy dolphin appears to give a wink as he swims along the shore. In the shallows below, a number of crabs, fish and a small squid watch the dolphin. This is a great image for anyone looking for images of dolphins, crabs, fish or squids.
The book where this image was found might have been called Europa’s Fairy Book but with so many wonderful illustrations by John D. Batten (1860-1932) perhaps it should have been named “The wonderful 1916 work which provided so many useful illustrations for artists almost 100 years later.”
