whale-eye

^ That is a blue whale’s eye, at actual size. Courtesy of the WDCS.

They’ve made this piece of flash that lets you float around the whale’s ample body – life sized. It’s huge but doesn’t actually seem as big as I thought it’d be. It doesn’t really help that you can only ever see a tiny portion of it at any one time, so it’s hard to put it in context. Nonetheless, mildly fun to play around on, and it’s for a good cause so no complaints here ๐Ÿ™‚
