COMING UP: THE BEST LINE IN THE ENTIRE KINGDOM HEARTS SERIES
for a typical forty ton humpback to breach the ocean’s surface — and breach is taken to mean at least 40 percent of its body is out of the water — it needs to reach speeds of 29 km/h. on rare occasions, the whale will completely launch out of the water; rarer still is the photographer who manages to capture it.
reasons for the behaviour are debated and varied, and range from mere pleasure, to courtship, to shedding the skin of parasites. calves (like in the sixth photo) can often be seen breaching for long periods of time, and it’s not uncommon for an adult to make multiple breaches; the most recorded is 130 jumps in 90 minutes.

Pheasant Coucal (Centropus phasianinus)
…a species of cuckoo (Cuculidae) which occurs in eastern and northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, where it inhabits subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical/tropical mangrove forests. Pheasant coucals are large (50-70 cm (20 to 28 in)) and are adapted for feeding on the ground, leading to their shape being reminiscent of a pheasant. Pheasant coucals are predominately carnivorous, feeding on small reptiles and amphibians, bird eggs/young, small mammals, and a range of insects.
