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.

I have experienced a similar situation where a little bird flew into the window of our living room. That bird actually make it but before she flew away again her mate sat in a nearby bush and watch over her the whole time. That was a very touching moment that I will never forget. Birds are really fantastic!

Los animales tal vez no esten tan desarrollados como nosotros en algunos aspectos, pero eso no significa que no tengan ciertas capacidades que merezcan un respeto o un mínimo de atención. A la humanidad le ha costado (y le sigue costando) demasiado aceptar esto, es por eso que algunos científicos estan luchando desesperadamente por mejorar sus derechos.
Es triste lo que pasó, pero es tierno que lo transmitieras.

...Aun preocupa un poco que casualment tengas como tres imágenes tan buenas de pájaros muertos. Tu puedes decir lo que quieras, pero no es común encontrarse algo así de forma casual...solo espero y deseo que no lo hayas hecho tu. (Entiende que me preocupe)

Animals maybe are not so developed as humans in some aspects, but that does not mean they have not certain capacitys which deserve a respect or a minimal of atention. Humanity needed (and still does) too much time to acept this, and is that why some scientifis are fighting desperately for getting them better rights.
it is sad what happened, but is sweet that you transmited it. a little worried becouse yo casually have like 3 images with so good quality of dead birds. You can say whaterver you want,  but is not commun to casually find something like this...i just wish you didn't do it. (please, understand my concern)

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.

It does look so that the living bird has a hurt leg. But I know for a fact that animals do love and have attached feelings. Any animal mourns for a dead loved one. As any bear would do if their cub dies or a mother bird if her chicks died. And no doubt if a dog's owner died. It happens everywhere. Animals have feeling too. This is an amazing shot captured. It is very sad, though and reminds me of a few things I've seen before.

I don't wanna' destroy the mood here, but I think the living bird has actually a broken leg and that is why he maybe can't start off.

Human are not the only animal to have emotion. Yet why this bird stay is a mystery. The trouble with emotion is dose not translate between species.
