In pictures: Moray Firth's marine wildlife

A new audio-video installation has been created to show the wildlife that is found in and around Scotland's Moray Firth.


The new public exhibition features the work of international wildlife photographer Andrew Sutton, who has previously photographed animals and habitats in Africa, Central America and Asia.


The installation is a Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) project and is running in the Ice House building at the charity's Scottish Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay in Moray.

Bottlenose dolphins are one of the Moray Firth's best-known large animals.


The project also involves other conservationists and experts such as local WDC field officer Charlie Phillips and Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Among the most striking creatures featured in the installation, which was opened on Monday, is the basking shark.
