Summer has not officially started until I have seen a blue whale. My first blue whale photo of 2006:
I got out recently with Mike Johnson and we saw a few blue whales.
One of our redwood tree photos was used as reference for the redwood tree stamp appearing as part of the United States Postal Service’s new commemorative issue Wonders of America :: Land of Superlatives. Released on May 27th, 2006, this stamp pane features 40 natural and man-made wonders of the United States. These remarkable places, plants, animals, and structures were selected from every region of the country. The stamp art is by Lonnie Busch, who illustrated the 50 GREETINGS FROM AMERICA stamps in 2002. On the front of each stamp, in large letters, are words that describe the superlative nature of a particular place or thing. Smaller type gives the name or location of the featured wonder. Text on the back of each stamp provides relevant statistics and other interesting information.
