I have a few videos that I save up for Sundays… usually they are animal stories.
Today, I have animal stories with a twist. In both of these, the animals take the lead. They approach the human. One for fun and one for help.
Enjoy these while you enjoy your Sunday!
1) Photographer and an elephant seal pup. (Click here for video)
2) This video of the Russian and the Swans starts out slow unless you understand Russian…(speed ahead to 3:30) but the events inside are remarkable. First of all, the audio is in Russian, so we don’t know what is going on. But then we find out that two swans are hooked together (neck under wing type of thing) and stuck.
One of the swans must have known they were in dire straights because he kicked the two of them over to the Russian man who was kneeling at the shoreline.
In a stroke of genius and diving intervention, the Russian helper was able to calm the birds, figure out their entanglement and unwind them. And then they ran off. One of the swans looks as if his side ‘went to sleep’ during the ordeal because he is rather shaky. For some reason (if you speak Russian, please let me know why…) the man picked up the bird and put him back in the water.
Anyway, the whole interaction is remarkable. Speed ahead to about 3:30.
