I saw this today whilst scouring through the tons of miserable news and instantly felt lifted so I wanted to share it with you.
In the Straits of Gibraltar, the gateway to the Mediterranean, a group of Pilot Whales were swimming past when they noticed the camera. Not wishing to miss an opportunity one stopped to show his best side, looking at his reflection in the camera to be sure that they had the right shot, and indeed they did.
At 3 tons and 20 foot long he certainly has pressence and whilst they have been known to grab a diver by their leg and drag them to the bottom if they feel threatened, they have also been known to do the reverse, pulling people up from the bottom of the ocean, so as well as being absolutely stunning, great in front of the camera they are also, it would seem, very good judges of character!
I just love him, he makes me smile and what else can you ask for?
