The Sentience of Swallows

This is truly amazing & very touching.............

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.

Millions of people cried after watching this picture in

America and Europe and even in Asia . 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?????


  1. Michael, thank you for sharing this. I knew animals have emotional lives, but I have to confess I was not expecting this. I love being amazed, and the best thing about animals is we don't know everything, or even very much about them, and we never will.
    I am passing this on, and I hope it can be a beacon for waking up the understanding that people do have in them. That animals are sentient beings.
    Here's to the future :)

  2. Sambee, it's overwhelming how emotional animals are even if we don't quite see it or understand it. Thanks so much for checking out my blog!
