Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) two breaching in evening light, Moray Firth, Inverness-shire, Scotland, UK, August, sequence 2/2. Photographer quote: 'A day of overcast cloud cleared in the last ten minutes of sunset spilling golden light through a small gap between the cloud base and hill top. A group of dolphins seized the moment and performed a perfect synchronized leap in the low warm sunlight. And I smiled, sighed with relief, and went home happy!' Did you know? The bottle nose dolphins in the Moray Firth are said to be worth more than £4m to the Inverness economy through tourism revenue.

Bella the baby elephant at Chessington Zoo in 1970. Her keepers bought bubble kits to amuse her. Animals certainly know how to enjoy themselves and this picture of an elephant having fun in the 1970s is perfect to hang on the wall of a child's bedroom / nursery - or simply to remind grown ups of the need to have fun!
