Wake up Honey

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've seen them do this, and even push/nudge the body. It is the saddest thing.

Very sad story but yeah, birds and animals definately have at least some feelings and recognition of each other. It`s really unfortunate birds can fly into windows on cards and buildings so easily =/

Humans are animals and ALL animals love, are sentient, and care. So, yes, they do love. Hence why we need to go vegan because they have rights, and we simply don't need to eat, use, abuse, or exploit them.

apparently you've never heard of the food chain
Ga-Maleven's avatar
Apparently you never heard of science or common sense seeing how the food chain has nothing to do with animal rights. Humans are herbivores and we re quite low on the food chain when we have no weapons. Bears, lions, tigers, wolves, etc. make quick meals out of us. So if your rude comment was a remark on where humans are, you can see how terribly mistaken you are.

Rest In Peace, Sweetheart. I hope your mate didn't become depressed. Birds die from that, too....

its sad, but happy AT THE SAME TIME! Its so true, this is how creatures normally react when their mate dies. Well, SOME of them. Others are just like "Welp, time to find another one."

I know that Penguins and Cardinals mate for life, I am sure there are others that do as well.

Many fish mate for life too, and if the mate dies the other lives life alone, until they die.
