life and death in our backyard

The four young blackbirds had flown from the nest and were scattered in our backyard ….

of course I took a few pictures ….

 

 

 

beautiful young life !

 

But …. a few hours later one of the young blackbirds was brutally caught and dragged along by a western jackdaw

 

Nature is like a balance ….

with one blackbird less, the crawling insects have a better chance of survival !

but it is hard to be an eyewitness of the evolution (in your own backyard) with a humanistic world view…….
