The first day on the water with Spyhop’s new motor was exciting because we saw well-known bottlenose dolphin mom “Cutty” with a neonate in the Newport River. A relatively small mom, Cutty looks very much the same as she did when we first photographed her in Beaufort in July, 1985. Since then we’ve seen her in Beaufort on 103 days, only during the months of April-October.
