Damn, Mother Nature: Pictures Of A Bird Of Prey Carrying A Shark That's Eating A Fish

April 30, 2018

Because sometimes the circle of life is just a dot, these are several photos captured by Doc Jon of a western osprey (aka seahawk) flying off with a young shark that was in the process of eating a fish. Obviously, I'm really not looking forward to having to put on my scuba gear and go give Nemo's dad the bad news. He's already been through so much.

Keep going for some zoomier shots while I prepare for life underground. "Like in a cave?" If Mother Nature has anything to do with it, a coffin.

Thanks to Rick, who agrees Mother Nature might not be the most nurturing mother after all.

    That's the Osprey version of Turkducken.

    A bird has to eat, you know!

    I believe this is Australia's Mascot.

    LOL! Except there really needs to be a spider eating the freaking bird....then that would be perfect Australia

  • Doog

    Totally agree.

    Hell perhaps there's a spider in the bird's head controlling it.

    Oooh good one!!! Like today's post about that 45+ yr old Australian tarantula that just died. I said it before and I'll say it again - the humans sent their convicts and murderers to Australia and it really seems like the animal kingdom did the exact same thing.

    That is the animal equivalent of finding a curly fry in your regular fries.

    Taken by a guy through a scope on a gun that has a bear sneaking up behind him.

    Bravo.

    The bear has a parasitic worm inside of it laying eggs.

    My brain was too screaming this when I first saw the title + photo.
