Whale

“This whale had breached a couple of times before this and many times they’ll just keep doing it. I went below deck to shoot from a porthole close to the water line. That’s what gives this amazing perspective of looking up at the whale. Since the boat is closer, it should look bigger, but the whale is huge! If I’d been the fisherman, I’d probably need some new underwear.”

Myrmecological Hot Links

Cadillac Walk, Moon Martin (1978) John David “Moon” Martin had a minor hit with Cadillac Walk (as recorded by Willie DeVille) and also wrote Robert Palmer‘s mega hit Bad Case of Loving You. Both songs first appeared on Martin’s 1978 album Shots from a Cold Nightmare but received little attention. Popular in the UK but relatively unknown in the US, he opened for / played with the likes of Janis Joplin, Linda Ronstadt and Jimi Hendrix. Many of his songs had “moon” in the lyrics, hence the nickname.
