Mudskipper The local "what's here" sign told me the name of the species. I really like the little blue dots. These guys go from the little streams to the larger mud areas and seem to spend a lot of time fighting over territory.

Bird Bar The dark birds are Great Cormorants (there is a large colony in Mai Po). The taller grey birds are Grey Herons.

Two Dorsal Fins I think there were about four dolphins in this group.

Chinese Dolphin With Bridge Construction Behind First a new island for an airport, then a bridge linking Hong Kong with Macau, I can't imagine the environment for these dolphins is easy.

Chinese Dolphins Near Tai O This boat ride highlighted the problems with my technique. The boat had safety railings all the way around and the whales came up on the opposite side from me so I often got them in my shot. The whales surface quickly and sink - you loose half your time just trying to find them and focus. My camera isn't super fast (ISO or frame rate) so I didn't get much.
Considering the boat trip is only a few dollars (but doesn't last more than 15 minutes), you get what you pay for.
