Love and Sorrow

1 Here a female mate is injured and the condition is soon fatal.

She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.
2 He brought her food and attended to her with
love and compassion.
3 He brought her food again but was shocked to find her dead.
4 He tried to move her ... a rarely-seen effort for swallows!
5 Aware that his sweetheart is dead and will never
come back to him again, He cries with adoring love.

6

He stood beside her, saddened at her death. Finally aware she would never return to him, he stood beside her body with sadness and sorrow.

Millions of people cried after seeing these photos in America,  Europe, Australia, and even India .
The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France.

All copies of that edition were sold out on the day these pictures were published.

And many people think animals don't have brains or feelings? You have just witnessed Love and Sorrow
felt by all God's creatures.  The Bible says God knows when a sparrow falls.

I never saw these photos before now. Very good catch to find these photos. My hat is off to the photographer who witnessed this and was able to take these photos. Great post today, Berni!
