Not much beauty here James, a bit like watching a tortoise trying to swim, yeah feeding the youngsters can be a major drawback in nature, but we're working on it, cheers David

Ain't it so Christopher, unless your a supermodel and survive on a glass of water a day, nature does what nature is, and never apologises, cheers David

This is how it is in the wild, survival of the fittest across the length and breadth of the food chain. Congratulations my friend on your deserved win. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Thank you Jennifer, I was delighted to get a mention in the contest, your so right survival of the fittest for the animals, I think it's morphing into survival of the cleverest for mankind, cheers David

Thank you Susan, leave it to me to use the graphic imagery as my inspiration, but I'm delighted when people see it as raw nature at work, cheers David

Morning Jenna, probably too visceral in detail, such is the nature of the beast, like Tom said below, we've all got to eat, but hey I got a mention and some nice comments, cheers David

We've all got to eat, stunning imagery David. Tom
