Love and Sorrow on a Paris Road

This came in from a member of the Arlington Birders' Group. This may serve as a reminder of the care we must take when driving upon our roads-- especially in wooded and conservation areas.

Photo # 1: Here his wife is injured and the condition is fatal.
She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.

Photo # 2: Here he brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion.

Photo # 3: He brought her food again but was shocked to find her dead. He tried to move her....a rarely-seen effort for swallows!

Photo # 4: Aware that his mate is dead and will never come back to him again,
he cries with adoring love.
Photo #5: He stood beside her, saddened of her death.

Photo # 6: Finally aware that she would never return to him, he stood beside her body with sadness and sorrow.
Millions of people cried after watching this picture in America and Europe and India . It is said that the photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France . All copies of that newspaper were sold out on the day these pictures were published. And many people think animals don't have a brain or feelings?
