Simple lunch today, only had to open packages.
Robin’s first sunbath this year. He tried really hard to get some fleas or something out of his feathers, behind the ear/neck. Beak opens like this to ventilate.
A year ago in Mexico…
Curious whale approached me, whilst staring directly at me (yellow square in photo is the eye).
This is the clearest and closest of a whale’s eye I ever saw. I was in a trance. I think the whale was, too. Locking eyes with this majestic creature was such an intense emotional experience. You would get the chills, too. In terms of distance, my face was right above the water and the eye was right under the surface so yes it was very close indeed.
This is the whale’s point of view. (open here)
