Plate 80, 18x27
This beautiful lady was so attentive and focused for so long I almost thought her an old friend. Being so close and spending extra time with her got me a reprimand from one of the Argentine sailors, who warned me that she had the capacity to kill a person with a simple flip of her large tail. If she reaches you, she may easily break your back. I immediately backed up, since I had wanted to pet her.
If there ever was a universal mother I would believe she was it.
