When a Swallow Falls

The following pictures were linked to me by one of my followers on my facebook page and, wow, the pictures really speak for themselves. I just had to share as they are so amazing and unbelievable that everyone needs to see them.

A female mate was injured when a car hit her while she
was swooping across a road.

Her mate brought her food and attended to her with
love and compassion.

He brought her food again but was shocked and
upset to find her dead.

He tried to move her ... a rarely seen effort for swallows!

He stood beside her, saddened by her death.
Realising that his sweetheart and mate is dead
and will never come back to him again, he cries with
adoring love.

Finally aware that she would never return to him,
he stayed beside her body chirping out of sorrow
and sadness.

I didn't really think too much about wild birds and their love for one another until I saw these. It really has confirmed that every, single animal on the earth is a living creature and must have feelings and emotions and that is isn't just a trait exclusive to humans. It's made me love and appreciate animals that little bit more! :)
