It does. Googled it after as well. Sea Angel. I was today years old when I found out about their existence. Thanks for that.

I love it when I am inspired to do interpretative art

As you can see in the video, Dwarf sperm whales have a special adaptation that allows them to release a cloud of ink from their anus when they are threatened, similar to squids and octopuses. This ink can confuse and deter their attackers, giving them a chance to escape


I love that soundtrack. The music of that era is my favourite. Thanks!

We don’t have the -ism thread anymore, but for all those that call homosexuality unnatural, here’s something to ponder…

Let’s hope that these trees survive long enough to reach full size. What a sight they will be.


I agree totally… :+1:

Good work going on in Glen Affric as well -
Some trees there are over 250yrs old, with humungous diameters that seem to reach almost to the sky


if you’re ever in my neck of the woods, go for a drive to here.

When I was young, my grandparents lived in a small town on Vancouver Island where my grandfather was an industrial electrician for MacMillan Bloedel who was a forestry giant back in the day. 42yrs he worked at that mill.

My parents would take me over for the weekend for visits, my grandad would pick me up at the ferry terminal in Nanaimo and we would make the 90min drive back through this park. Sometimes, he would stop and take me for a walk through the trees for a little while. they are giants, have their own ecosystem there


No way I could mess about handling Rats like this guy - Fuck That :0)

This cheered me up, in these grim times​:heart::face_holding_back_tears:

Aurora borealis is supposed to be spectacular this evening, visible over most of Europe (subject to light pollution).
