Bottlenose dolphin - blowing air bubble
Bottlenose dolphin - blowing air bubble (Tursiops truncatus). Distribution: Worldwide except polar regions. Complex play / creative behaviour: dolphins often play with the bubbles or rings of air they create, both visually and by using sonar. They appear to enjoy biting the vortex rings, so that these burst into many seperate normal bubbles, which then rise more rapidly to the surface. They also play games, diving through the bubble rings for fun!

Reprisal! by H M Bateman
Reprisal! by H M Bateman - humorous illustration of what can happen if a woman decides to wear trousers. In this scene the reprisal for the wife wearing trousers is that her husband has taken to wearing a dress. The stand off is shown in the expressions on their faces, pure defiance, a stale mate. They are both smoking angrily.
