Introducing Friends of the White Whale Society. We give you, The White Whale, Summer 2018

Sasha sends from Franklin Square.

I’d like to take the opportunity to announce the formation of the Friends of the White Whale Society (FOTWWS). It took a while navigating the nonprofit bureaucracy but we are now official. Basically we take a lot of photos of white squirrels and other urban wildlife exotica. Join us!!

OK, the White Whale(s) is no stranger to the pages of PoPville but there has been an explosion of sightings this summer. I am grateful to all who sent in samples. Without further ado, I give you, not including the ones we’ve already posted this summer, the White Whale, summer 2018:

Dan sends from Dupont

Christina sends from the National Gallery of Art

Maxine sends from Mass. Ave

Uriah sends from Lanier Heights

Holly sends from Franklin Square

Lisa sends from 20th and Mass.

Erica sends from Franklin Sauare

Michael also sends from Franklin Square

Lizzie sends from Dupont Circle

Hannah sends from Franklin Square

And finally Caitlin sends from NGA

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Friends of the White Whale Society is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
