A Walrus on an Iceberg…

I saw this photo by Daniel Beltra, in yesterday’s papers and apart from the obvious political and social implications of climate change and our atrocious record of looking after our home planet, I couldn’t help but wonder…   how on earth did that big old walrus get up onto that thin shelf of ice..

Did he jump, did he first choose that spot several months ago and has been waiting patiently as the iceberg melts around him for the friendly Greenpeace photographer to arrive at just the right moment. Maybe he was put there by a helicopter and asked to pose for his portrait… My friend Archie has suggested that he probably just waited until high tide…

And how far must the iceberg extend underwater to be able to counterbalance such a big animal so perfectly…

I’ve no idea whatsoever, but it seems to me to be an image that should inspire us into doing whatever we can to ensure such wonders will always be possible…

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all
    over the internet without my authorization.
    Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being
    stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
