Dolphins by Chantecaille
May 05, 2010
Chantecaille has redeemed itself in the eyes of the Curator. After a few pretty uninteresting releases (uninteresting from a collectible standpoint, anyway) they have released this lovely palette for spring. While I don't think it has the level of detail of, say, the Protected Paradise palettes, it's worth collecting. Here it is with and without flash:
If you look really closely the big dolphins all look like they're smiling!
As with the other wildlife palettes, 5% of sales will go an institution that helps save the animal - in this case, it will go to the President of the Tethys Research Institute, "a non-profit NGO for the study and the conservation of the marine environment in the Mediterranean" that "has been studying Mediterranean whales and dolphins for two decades and has become one of the foremost research organizations working in the area." So there you have it. I'm curious to know what Chantecaille has up its sleeve for fall!
