I was just scrolling this thread and came to that poor bird, one eye. It saddened me. But I expect it's in a refuge and find comfort assuming that's the case.
Then I said to my wife, these are really fantastic photos of monkeys but I just can't bring my self to like them.

Then I read this post.

Jeff you're not alone in your thoughts.

This is a really good photo.
With regards to my comments below, it doesn't stop me admiring good photography and he's actually an interesting and different animal.
Well captured.

Jeff, there was an interesting report about a married couple who both had a passion for wildlife photography, knowing that they were going to be photographing grizzly bears in Alaska together. Due to the fact that her husband was a long distance marathon runner, she decided to pack a small caliber derringer for bear protection. And sure enough that little gun saved her life on one of their bear outings. For whatever the reason, a large male grizzly charged down the side of hill, fully bent on attacking the couple. According to unnamed sources, her lightning quick reactions saved her life. She immediately drew her derringer and fired two shots directly in to her husband's kneecaps. This enabled her to casually leave the scene completely unscathed. Unfortunately her husband was not so lucky. He never made it. She apparently stayed strictly with bird photography after that incident. :-)


LD, or Mike
Often mistaken, but never in doubt.
