Everyone's been talking about this picture today. OK, by everyone I mean Kelly Ripa and Russell Brand on "LIVE with Regis and Kelly" and the anchor on NY1 News this morning. But that's a lot of people! Published this morning in the NY Post and yesterday in the Daily Mail it shows Dylan Madisetti and Scar - the friendly (?) sperm whale living in the waters off the coast of the Commonwealth of Dominica. The photo was taken by Dylan's father Arun, a marine biologist.

See a few more photos here.
