14.06.2017 – Fluke print, but ecological?

14.06.2017 – Fluke print, but ecological?

Almost every day we are going out on the ocean, almost every day we are presented with all these wonderful sightings and today was one of those days. A small group of Bottlenose dolphins acted reluctant, so we left, we do not want to become a nuisance. The Atlantic Spotted dolphins with their lively and ebullient energy were very sociable. Another highlight moment was the encounter with a Sperm whale. Such a powerful presence! The finale was when he lifted his fluke and vanished into a world, which is for us still filled with mysteries. Only his fluke print remained. This might reminded us, that we as well leave an ecological foot print on this planet. May he be as little as possible to preserve all these wonder of our nature.
