Drama in the high seas off Kalpitiya

Sent in by Srianee Dias
Hi Lucky,

This link was sent to me by one of my younger relatives.  It is a series of outstanding photographs taken in the ocean off Kalpitiya.  The photos document a confrontation between Orcas (called 'killer whales' but in actuality the largest species of the dolphin family) and whales. There is also a narrative accompanying the photos that explains the drama.  I have been on a few whale watching trips in the USA, both on the West coast and off Cape Cod, but have never seen anything as dramatic as this.  Unfortunately, the website includes some advertisements.  I felt that it was something worth sharing, because the whales that are inhabiting the ocean around Sri Lanka are getting a lot of international attention.  I have not yet been able to see the whales in Sri Lanka, but hopefully will get around to it very soon.  Check it out Lucky, and post it if you think it is appropriate. It is quite amazing!

Creative Spot by Mahendra Gonsalkorale



He looks behind anxiously
His own shadow he sees
Panics and starts to run
Sweating profusely
He looks behind terrified
The shadow is still with him
He runs faster and faster

Thus the ignorant
Unaware of their own failings
Tread their unhappy way
Their folly never leaves them
Till Wisdom dawns
And the illuminating light

Dispels the shadow
