Saw this fellow in a gigantic aquarium last week, and couldn’t resist getting a close-up. He’s an old sturgeon, about the size of a small child, and his whiskers are fraying a bit at the tips–but they still work, I’d bet, and better than most.

Age brings experience and calm, and that is its beauty. Each day you accumulate brings more of all three.

Have a good weekend, chickadees.
