    I’ve been studying it (to the exclusion of Getting On With My Day), & was transmogrifying… what if you did another one with a baleen whale such as a Gray or a Humpback, using the baleen as the beard? Well, what if? My mind’s eye is out there floating with that other one, obviously. I am beyond enchanted. Now I have to go to the supermarket….

  • Ohhh, prefer the baleen whales do we? Blatant favouritism!

    Actually, a chance encounter with a Southern Right Whale in Port Philip Bay a couple of years ago has left me somewhat awe struck by the giant filter feeders. Not that I got close enough to pat the whale like some people do (still jealous).

    Cetacean Santa and his two reindolphins. Well done Richard.

  • It is a bit of an odd idea, but seems to work. Thanks for the comment.
