Weekly High-Five Report: Animal Joy


Sometimes nature just blows me away. I’ve watched dolphins surf on the bow wave of a boat and whales breach high out of the water. I’m convinced that animals experience joy. My avalanche dog used to sled down steep slopes on his back, get to the bottom, shake himself off and smile. We aren’t the only animals in the kingdom that understand the importance of play. This video is a case in point. High-five to these starlings. Dance on!
