That is a photo shop. I thought it was real when I first saw it a couple of years ago, but have since found out otherwise.

Looks like I'm gonna be the one to post it first.
I knew that pic would show up eventually :g

Here's one I took a couple years ago that I just think is cute. Now that I am getting a new camera (and thanks to all who have me advice.. I posted in my thread what I decided on), I'll post a couple when I go out to California this year. This picture is from Cal Poly .. it was late June right after moms had foaled.

I think that is exactly what it is saying. We are insignificant.

I humbly, respectfully disagree.

We are, relative to the physical universe, small.

But we have Mind ... boundless, curious, young.

We are the very definition of Significant.
