Two of the most extraordinary things you’ll see this week
I’ve not seen Oceans, the most recent documentary from Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, the creators of Travelling Birds, but after seeing the two videos below I think I need to. The first is of sleeping whales, and is just luminously beautiful, while the second is of one of the strangest creatures I’ve ever seen, the Blanket Octopus (while we’re on the subject of octopi, you might also want to check out Sy Montgomery’s fabulous piece about octopi in Orion).
And in case it’s driving you crazy, that very sexy voice you can hear is Pierce Brosnan’s.
Thanks to io9 for the heads-up.
