Seeing Someone Seeing

Someone with a cellphone camera

noticed a whale in the Buttermilk Channel

and clicked a shot of its aura,

just a random someone with a camera.

How often do we see phenomena--

a robin or turtle hatching? or an angel

of a child with a camera

capturing her whale in the Buttermilk Channel?
