This is for a Challenge..Dead Animals.. in ..Everything Ends Group!

I was at the duck pond a while back taking pictures of the ducks when I caught site of this big male goose. It looked like he was trying to get something in the water there at the edge on the pond ,so I zoomed in and took a few pictures of him . It wasn.t until a while later after he moved away from were he was and I could walk over to were he was that I could see what it was he was doing! he was pecking at was this poor little duck that was dead in the water. Well the longer I was there the more I noticed other things going on as well …he wasn’t the only one that keep going over there and peckng at this poor thing , but they all were doing this and I had notice they all were doing this to another poor duck and it was still alive but just barely!! I don’t no why they were doing this? I have never seen ducks gang up and attack each other like this before?

Photography to me is a way to preserve the astounding wonders of our world. It is a way of bringing life to lifelessness, to stir our emotions upon seeing something fantastic.
Hope you enjoyed viewing through my eyes.

    it is a beautiful photograph of the strongest, and a sad story too

  • Thank you so very much…Naia!! for both the wonderful comment and for swinging by!! both are very much appreciated!! I had never seen Ducks act in this way before ! They were each taking there turn in beating up on the one duck until it was dead and as with this image even after it was dead!! It was so very sad to see!

    I saw a duck doing this to another once… it was very strange :/

  • Thanks so very much…Matt! for swinging by…Yes it was at that ..Strange and mean, I know it is all a part of nature…only the strongest will survive and all but still…! I felt so sorry for the duck .
