The Chase (II)

pond, NY

Caption: Cute, but vicious little critters...

In the game of life,
The strong survive.
We’re on a one-way street,
We gotta make it out alive,
And never let ’em drag us down.

In the game of life,
We live and die.
Another breath begins,
Another chance to win the fight,
From the moment that you hit the ground.

It’s the game of life…
The game of life.

— Scorpions,  “The Game Of Life”

Thanks!

And as I mentioned, it's ironic that these critters are so scaredy, that they'll be halfway across the pond when they even see you coming from far away, yet they'll go killing each other like nothing.

Nothing more entertaining than the
Spring Fever Fury" that birds go through while protectingtheir "teritory" They are so small and fast it's hard to capture, but entertaining to watch! Nice. 10 from SW Iowa.

Hey, thanks, all y'all!

And yep, it's That Time again, when all sorts of birds try killing each other for no particular reason other than they're birds. :D

Hey, thanks, all y'all!

And it's ironic that these goofy-looking little critters that're *so* skittish that, when you see 'em and try to sneak up on 'em for a quick set of shots, they're halfway across the pond, could be so vicious to each other.

Lookit the other pic, how that critter doing the chasing has his mouth open like he's trying to *bite* the other one!

Hjeh, they're about as bad as hyu-mons. :D
