Swallow......

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

Here he brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion.

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

Aware that his sweetheart is dead and will never come back to him again,
he cries with adoring love.

He stood beside her, saddened of her death.

Finally aware that she would never return to him, he
stood beside her body with sadness and sorrow.


And many people think animals don't have a brain or feelings

They often have more than we do.

The animal kingdom is at time far more compassionate and loyal than humans

That was truly touching. I would have never known. I guess they do have feelings. :)

Some animals take care of each other better than people do. This is amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Looks to me as if he's just trying to shag her. Maybe she's done this lying still and unresponsive thing before - I've known women like that. You always go ahead anyway, though, don't you?
