    They do look rather relaxed… but I like their concept of mating!!

  2. Fergiemoto says:

    Nice photo! They must be very exhausted!

    • TBM says:

      I would imagine! Our guide said that it could be harder on the male since if another female during this season selects him he won’t get much rest. It is possible that after this experience he has to start all over with another female. The men in our tour group were quite impressed with this.

    Wow, they will be exhausted after those 4 days:) Hope you’ve been well.

    • TBM says:

      Yeah 4 days, every 10-25 minutes day and night would be tiring. But they do sleep a lot as well. Things are good here. Just waiting for the hurricane to hit Boston. Have a great weekend.

  10. Nice! Now that explains the glow in their faces (teehee). 😉
