Photographer Finn Hopson has captured an extremely rare sighting of a dolphin breaching the water at Brighton Pier.
What could only be described as a once in a lifetime shot, Finn explained how he managed to snap the incredible moment, "I run a photography gallery on Brighton beach, right by the old West Pier so this was right in front of where I work.
One of my neighbours popped in to say she thought she'd seen a dolphin so I grabbed my camera and went to take a look.
It was out there for an hour or more, following the same path back and forth past the back of the pier. Every now and again it would do a few leaps then disappear for a while, just enough to keep a small crowd of people entertained on a grey day."
