An End to Danger#1
Posted: 3/23/08 at 5:40pm
I know some of you follow the story of Danger, the evil rooster who lived in my backyard, reigning over my hens and frequently attacking me and my siblings. Today, Danger met his end. A hawk swooped down and caught him, then dragged him under the porch to eat him.

I know some people might find it gross, but we were pretty fascinated by the process. The hawk watched us for a long time before digging in, and protected his prey the whole time. It was the first time we'd ever been this close to a raptor, and it was endlessly amazing.

I am in no way trivializing the loss of an animal's life, but the circle of life will continue no matter what, and I am grateful that I was able to witness it in action, even if it was a bit gross. I know many of you enjoy photography of wildlife, so I thought I'd share.

Now I'm singing "Circle of Life".

Thanks.

Great pictures, though. Aren't they somethin?

Poor Danger! I actually rooted for him whenever DGG visited the hen house.

It's about time. Yay for the hawk!
Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

I figured you'd like that, Deet.


The kids were fascinated. It was pretty gross. I could only look for about a second before I had to go and lie down. I'm such a wimp.
