Oh, how sad to see this massive mammal washed up on the shore Manyee. Here in NZ we sometimes get pods of smaller whales swim up onto our beaches as if they got their bearings all wrong. Then the call goes out for help and many go to try and get them back in the water. Very hard work. Thank you for showing this to us.

A sorry sight to behold, but we can't change the past or the lifecycle of nature. A vert apt image for this sight. Thank you.

Interesting shot Manyee,
It must have been quite a sight, and one I'm sure you'll only want to experience once.
Thanks for posting. good link, and an interesting article
Good capture Manyee and an interesting link, well worth posting, maybe you could add a full image of whale as a WS if you have it, even if it is a bit gruesome. TFS

I saw the miniature of the photo and somehow I knew that this is the dead whale, but I have no idea why, cause now it looks more like some kind of boat.
Very interesting shot of great value.

An excellent capture depicting the cycles of life. Not always pretty. Great informative notes on your subject. Nice Work!

Very interesting shot Manyee, It must have been something to see (and smell!). I've seen in the news awhile back where there was unexplained mass beaching of pilot whales.. something to do with submarine sonar affecting them...TFS!

This is a sad but geat picture, Manyee.
It's a unique and interesting picture and a great note too.

great image as a documentary type.
I like the way you placed the whale in the lower 2/3 of the frame to place emphasis on it, rather than putting the 2 birds in the upper 2/3.

Good POV, however I wish you had captured some more details of the whale too.
