The carcass of an enormous finback whale (Balaenoptera physalus) was discovered near the Italian port of Sorrento earlier this week, the Italian Coast Guard said in a Facebook post.

I want to share this selection of cute illustrations I made for a Romanian children’s book at the end of last year.
The book’s title is “Tase - Privighetoarea din adancuri” ( roughly translated: Tase - the nightingale of the deep”).

E poi, lungimiranza, saggezza, mistero e capacità di cavarsela in situazioni oscure e difficili.
