One Word Sunday: Lost

Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday-Lost’, got me searching through my Florida wildlife photos, and I quickly came up with four, showing a poor creature that has lost its life. Of course all creatures have to eat to live, but it’s always rather sad to see the ones that have ended up as part of the food chain.

Mr GBH however, looks delighted and obviously doesn’t think it’s sad at all.

He seems to do quite well with his fishing expeditions and certainly hasn’t lost his touch over the years that I’ve been observing him.

You could say that any fish within striking distance of that beak has already lost the battle.

The Cormorant is also very adept at skewering his sushi for lunch. Another hapless fish lost for all time, about to go down the hatch.

I hope you’re all having a lovely, relaxing Sunday. If you have any photos which show something lost or as in my case, of a creature that lost the battle with a predator, just click the link.

  2. That’s an interesting take on the challenge Sylvia .That’s some catch of the day for Mr GBH … you were quick on the click for these photos too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. WOW! These are great photographs dear Sylvia. and sure Great Catch for Heron too. Thank you dear, have a nice day, Love, nia

  4. It’s a wonder Mr GBH can get that big fish down his throat! I think I just recently posted our Northern Pygmy owl enjoyed a lunch of a little Junco… https://gunta.photos/2022/03/16/a-blush-of-springtime/
    Sad for the little Junco, but the owl needs to eat to stay alive. At least he graced us with a visit! ๐Ÿ˜ I like to think the Junco enjoyed his days of eating sunflower seeds and fattening up for Mr (Mrs?) Pygmy owl.

  5. My first thought was, oh, poor little fish .
    We are an odd lotโ€ฆ us humans! We eat fish, birds and red meat and yet we always feel sorry for the victims that other animals take!

  6. I really like your take on “lost”, Sylvia, and you have some great photos. It’s hard to imagine how necks to skinny can stretch to accommodate such enormous bites, especially as there’s no cutting and chewing involved. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi Sylvia – what a fun take on the lost life to a predator – while also noting the tinge of sadness that can come
    When we see creatures die or consumed – even if a part of the life cycle and all that.!
    And love how you called their food sushi – haha
