These astonishing photographs  record the final act of a chase that lasted two hours, and ended with the dolphin trapped in  the jaws of the eight – ton orca.

The dolphin was  originally part of a small group swimming off the Mexican coast but the others managed to get away, leaving it at the mercy of a whole pod of whales.

Photographer   Christopher Swann, who captured the extraordinary scene, said: ‘The killer whales tore round at full speed for two hours.
