Sometimes it appears so hard to us. A good sense of reality and acceptance here.

yes, it's even there in the harsh stuff! (love that photo!)

I guess one critter's serendipity is another's fatality :-)

Yes, the circle of life. One's end is another's beginning. And so it turns.

This works. This wasn't certainly unexpected.

I understand that it is natural, but unfortunately, it is always cruel..

Excellent photo! Most people don't think of roadkill this way but it is true! One man's trash is another bird's feast! Well done!
