A dancing whale

It is a beautiful Saturday morning here. Not to hot. Not to cool. Perfect.

And, here is a beautiful video to watch. A humpback whale was caught in a fisherman's net in the Sea of Cortez when a family in a boat came upon her and saved her. After getting free, she dances in the water for an hour, showering them with joy.

Have a beautiful Saturday.

Michael Fishbach, co-founder of The Great Whale Conservancy (GWC), narrates his encounter with a young humpback whale entangled in local fishing nets.

I didn't have time to watch this when it first showed up on FB, so thank you. Truly thrilling to see the whale saved. And how wonderful that the animal knew it was being saved and repaid those who cut her loose with that great show.

I'll never forget going on a whale watch off the coast of Cape Cod some years ago. We saw quite a few whales, including a mother and her baby, and porpoises. So amazing to see these magnificent creatures up close.
