sometimes nature is not beautiful …..

On the former island Neeltje Jans many birds are breeding this time of year …. 

Father and mother Goose have 4 children and lead them to the open water …

They are probably just a few hours old and stay close to their mother ….

But there is a hungry seagull …

and the seagull drags one of the young geese out of the water …

the geese could’t do anything to prevent it …

the seagull takes it to a place nearby …

and kills the young by breaking the neck …

the geese are going further with the other three that are left …

They have no means to defend themselves … in the middle of hundreds hungry seagulls  …

The rest of the walk I had to think of all those children who are in warzones like Syria ….

too old to die young, but still making love and not war
