These magnificent creatures. I didn’t realize there were whale sharks at the Georgia aquarium and it happened to be the last one I visited before moving to other Atlanta attractions. I could have lingered in this room for hours admiring the fish, mana rays and sharks in this tank. Sadly I had a schedule to stick to but little did I know I would be back a couple weeks later to truly admire them again.

I thought I'd try something a little different! I'll be putting up at least part of my next update ("enchanted ocean" theme!!) as daily "flash sales" in my Etsy store, starting TOMORROW (just because I wanted to announce it before starting, as this is quite different than my usual twice-a-month updates) ✨
Here's how it will work: 💖I'll be putting items up in my store as I post them on Instagram - I'll try to make it clear if an item is a "flash sale" item! 💖Shop link is in my Instagram bio - any items for sale will be available in my Etsy store.
💖I'll be posting "flash sale" items at random times during the day, so hopefully the times will work for lots of people! 💖I haven't decided how long I'm going to do this for - maybe for a few days, maybe a couple of weeks - I need to see how I and y'all like it!! Hopefully, this will allow people who haven't been able to "make" the update times able to get something they have been wanting! 💕 Thank you for bearing with me if this is confusing - feel free to ask questions below, or DM me! This crystal whale shark will be going up TOMORROW when I post the next item (so two ocean animals will go up together with the next post). Basically, I've been putting SO much pressure on myself with the big updates, and I just want to see if this makes me less anxious, and at the same time works better for all of you! I'm not saying goodbye to big updates, just giving myself a little break from them! 💖 Any feedback is greatly appreciated, and I hope y'all understand 💖 PS sorry if "flash sale" is the wrong term - not sure what to call this 🙈

An Orca saying hello and having a nibble on a Luke Reilly's paddle board. While there has been no reported deaths from Orcas in the wild this would be both scary and beautiful rolled into one! Mind blowing encounter in New Zealand

[Jour 21] Bon matin no.21! Il est seulement 10h15 am mais le matin veut la peine d’être posté..! Réveil à 4h30 pour se préparer à aller voir des requins baleines 🤭🤭.. Petit briefing sur l’importance du respect dans l’eau avec les créatures (j’étais contente de voir qu’ils font ça malgré le reste).. Puis nous embarquons dans une petite barque. J’ai déjà mes palmes et mon masque, j’attends comme un enfant de voir les spécimens... Puis des ailerons commencent à apparaître autour du bateau!!!! Et j’entends (Ok, it’s here)...Pendant que le groupe hésite un peu avant d’entrer dans l’eau je suis déjà loin du bateau..! 😂🤟🏼 Pas une seconde d’hésitation, je suis en admiration devant la grandeur et la délicatesse des créatures 😍😍😍. Je me suis éloigné des bateaux et du groupe (faisant mine de ne pas comprendre les locaux qui me chicanaient 😅..) et wow.. belle expérience sincèrement! J’avouerais qu’une partie de moi n’est pas fière car j’évite tout ce qui est attraction animalière (pas de zoo, ni de spectacle de dauphins, pas de tigre ni d’éléphants en Thaïlande l’an passé, etc).. Cela reste un commerce contre nature😞, rien n’est en cage ni aucune douleur ne leur ai affligé, mais ils sont nourris et deviennent plus dépendants.. .

What. A. Day. Up at 4 to travel to see the Whale Sharks this morning and then renting snorkels to see the sardine runs this afternoon. Fully packed but fully worth it! #Philippines#WhaleSharks#Snorkeling
No orca has ever killed a human in the wild yet the majority of us will watch this with utter fear. Interesting isn't it? Why do we fear and eagerly read the headline stories the media like to feed us, why do the masses choose to believe the hysteria over the facts and reality? How can the medias opinion control our emotions so much? Experiment! Let's all take a moment to watch this video again, try to reduce your anxiety that the kids will get attacked (as we know they don't) remove the video sound so the onlookers shouting not to move and their groans of distress don't influence your emotion. Instead watch it again, turn the sound off and imagine these calm and intelligent mammals seek nothing from those kids except to satisfy their curiosity. Imagine the orca are simply passing the kids because they too are in the water, nothing more, nothing less, they mean them no harm.. So tell me, can you do it or are you still experiencing fear when watching the video? Honesty please! I'm curious.....
Whatever the outcome, one things for certain, those kids will never forget that once in a lifetime moment.

Damn. This fucker is just chompin’ down 🤣
Thanks for sharing @doseofsharks . Read their original caption below 👇
Sharks were long thought to primarily be aggressive predatory feeders until a study released in 2013 by the journal PLoS ONE reshaped the way scientists classify their feeding habits. 🤓 Seals, sea lions, and small toothed whales are known to be some of great white sharks' primary prey, but the study revealed scavenging may be a significant source of their diet. 🍽👀 Although, unlike terrestrial carnivores, little is known about shark scavenging habits. 🤷♂️ -

This orca was stranded for EIGHT hours — and these people worked to keep her alive the entire time while her family waited nearby. 💙
