I think it was the day I took an Oceanic Society boat trip to the Farallon Islands off of San Francisco. We saw six Blue Whales, the largest animals that have ever lived on Earth. But in addition, we saw eleven Humpback Whales and a California Gray Whale. All of these massive life forms were in the area feeding on tiny Krill. Efficiency in action!

Then I followed it up within a week with a trip to Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park to see the largest biomass trees in the world.
