Wake up Honey by AlchemyOtaku17 Wake up Honey by AlchemyOtaku17
This was possibly the sadest thing I've ever seen. The boy bird flew into my family's car while he was with his mate. He died and the girl bird wouldn't leave his side, no matter how close I got with my camera or when the ants started crawling over the boy bird.
It makes me wonder if animals are capable of feelings like love. Why else would she have stayed when in possible danger?

EDIT: Whoa! I've never had such a positive responce before on any of my work, let alone my photography. I may not respond to every comment, but believe me, I have read every one and really appreciate all of the stories and thoughts that were provoked. I feel kindof embarrassed because I didn't spend much time on this picture and had a couple other shots that were good, but I had no clue it would make it to the front page! Thanks again :heart:

If you want the 2000x2000 pixel image without the watermark for a project or something you can note me. I really hate putting watermarks on my work, but I'm just being cautious of art theft that commenters have brought up.

So sad... I cried.
Of course animals have feelings. Humans are animals too.

The TV, the pictures and even the experience in our lives can confirm that animals "feel". We must stop hesitation. See what happens with the dolphins, they kill without compassion, and they, in turn, are sociable and help the human being, or ask for help ... (On YouTube there is a video of a dolphin diver asks the help). How Siberian Tigers? To use their bodies mutilated. There are very few, between 400 and 500, as read ... Then I wonder ... Are not we the insensitive animal that exists in this world?

I can not write "what a lovely picture," because it makes me very sad, but no photos like yours, there would be evidence of such feelings. I imagine your anguish. Sorry for the sermon. A greeting.

La televisión, las fotos y hasta la experiencia en nuestras vidas pueden confirmar que los animales "sentimos". Hay que dejar de dudarlo. Mira lo que ocurre con los delfines, los matan sin compasión, y ellos, en cambio, son sociables y ayudan al ser humano, o piden ayuda... (En Youtube hay un video de un delfín que pide al buzo ayuda). ¿Y los tigres siberianos? Mutilados para utilizar sus órganos. Quedan muy pocos, entre 400 y 500, según leí... Entonces me pregunto... ¿No somos el animal más insensible que existe en este mundo?

No puedo escribir "qué linda foto", porque me produce mucha tristeza, pero si no hay fotos como las tuyas, no habría evidencia de tales sentimientos. Me imagino tu angustia. Perdón por el sermón. Un saludo.
