Communing with nature
So today I got to observe a pod of windmillus propelli in their breeding ground. I spent anywhere from several minutes to five hours observing these gentle creatures. When you are caught up in the magic of their lives, time loses meaning.
Here's a family cluster cresting the asphalt.
Here, some yearling windmillus propelli are practicing "skating."
A close up.
What amazed me was how gentle, and non agressive these creatures were. Even when I approached them their reaction was, to say the least, subdued.
So I wonder, what is it that SENATOR Kennedy fears about them?
It it just a lack of understanding?
