Must be from Biblical times ... no one lives to 230 years any more! But with 14 arms it could be an alien! ... or a giant with its height of 56 feet! Whatever it is, it is beautiful! An incredible capture, my friend! Perfect in every way! Another FAVE for me ... Hope we see this one again! :) #10234515
