baleno

Baleno is a male whale. In italian, the word "whale" (balena) is feminine and it is rather unusual to hear about a male whale. Actually we never talk about male whales. It is always "she whale". Therefore I guess that Baleno is a very special creature and I am glad to have met him.
He just popped out of a blue sea a few days ago, while I was painting some new coffee cups.
He is a bit vain but very quick at swimming and did you know? Baleno means flash, what a coincidence.
