Our own idea of how things should be is deeply ingrained. And when we see something that just doesn’t match the model – well – SURPRISE!
Notice anything funny in this picture? Depending on where you come from, this may not be surprising at all.
Since I live on the east coast of USA, I generally only see whales with water, a horizon line, and sky behind them. Maybe there is a water marker or another boat in the picture, but I’ve never seen them this close to a wall of granite or pine trees.
It was surprising to see these amazing creatures feeding and diving so close to the shore.
