WILD NATURE

Prey or predator,

death untangles survival

with purpose for all.

TIGHT SQUEEZE

A beautiful death

to compress a rodent’s life

into a banquet.

With apparent interest, judging by the comments, I’ve added this photograph of the gopher snake poking its head in a Black Phoebe’s nest of mud about ten feet up the vertical stack of hay bales. The nest has been empty for quite awhile. The snake knew just where it was and I suspect the Black Phoebe decided to move to another zip code.
