Beached Whale

A beached whale on Garretstown Beach last November.
A notice which is being read by the man in the foreground reads that this is a female long finned pilot whale and asks that people do not remove or bury it as it is required by researchers.
I was reluctant to post this picture in the past 2 months but after what happened in London when a whale died it spurred me to find this photo again.

This was taken on the same night as this photo and this one.

    I can see why you feel reluctant at first. But you can’t deny that this is a good shot.
