One more, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Doesn't that whale ever get a "Must crush puny human" feeling?

  11. The photos illustrate the theme -- the intelligent and social nature of whales -- of a fascinating article by Charles Siebert in the Sunday, July 12, 2009 Magazine section of the NY Times, "Watching Whales Watching Us."

  12. @jimmyboyo,

    thanx buddy. as much as people get involved in the mayhem of politics, there are non-committal pleasures out there. i can't see any human being not saying "awesome" at that spectacle.

  13. Michael J - haven't read the article yet but initial thoughts on "Watching Whales Watching Us" is thank god they can't speak - they'd probably give us a mouthful for how we have acted towards them. This picture is amazing.
