This sunrise was nothing to impress a dolphin

October 7, 2014


Do you ever wonder how many animals — besides people — appreciate sunrises?

Imagine floating in the wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean. I don’t mean bobbing around in one of those fluorescent orange survival suits having just narrowly escaped from a burning oil rig. I mean floating free as a wild dolphin; gently rocked and lapped by salt water; watching the sun rise like an eye opening into wakefulness.

Just the soft sound of the water and the sight of the sunrise. Intense colours banding the horizon, painting the coruscating water and the star-strewn night sky.

I have to hope cetaceans see the beauty in that.

On the other hand I expect sunrises are wasted on dogs (most things are). Cats may look out their windows and acknowledge the phenomenon, but only to dismiss it.

I guess I could just as well ask how many people have the time to stop and appreciate sunrises — hopefully lots. Click the image to enlarge it.
