Long-finned Pilot Whale

A few shots of a Pilot Whale which was washed up at Dolan near Ballyconneely on 12th June. It was fairly rancid. You could actually see and hear decomposition gases bubbling out of the carcass.
I usually associate ceteacean strandings with winter but this is the eight cetacean stranding in the county in the last two months.
Forgive the poor shots they were taken on a mobile phone and at their lowest resolution (unbeknownst to me). My compact camera got wet and wrecked inside a "waterproof" wet-bag recently.
