Dan & Ray

Hey, Grandpa! Daniel made a friend during a visit to Mt. Desert Island Biological Laboratory, Maine. We had just completed a tour of their research tanks, when I decided to take a photo of Daniel. The second I said, “Smile!”, to Daniel, “Ray” gave me a big old grin, too. For the next 20-minutes, “Ray” swam around the perimeter of his tank following Daniel. The researchers speculated that Daniel’s bright red cap was attracting “Ray”. We experimented, removing the cap, but it didn’t deter “Ray” from continuing to follow Daniel. It was difficult to leave the little guy behind. I mean “Ray”. Of course, we took Daniel home although he was convinced “Ray” would be lonely without him.
