Ever been up close and personal eyeball to eyeball with a whale? Me neither. This is about as close as I have ever been. As far as I know anyway.
Here is a wonderful site that gives you a great perspective on what a real life whale would look like in an up close and personal encounter. Stare into the whale's eye. Wow. And the background sounds are interesting, too. Then try to close the site and read the message.
I love Natsumi's watercolor of a whale, inspired by the above site. Check out her other little watercolors, too. So simple and pure and lovely.
