The Tale of the Shrike...
Having seen a really cool Osprey nest yesterday, I decided to walk along 510 today to go back and get a picture of it. Along the walk there was a pasture with barbed wire, and lots of impaled bugs.
I really have nothing against this bug, but I thought it was really cool how you can see he was impaled straight through the heart.
Another one. There's was a bunch of them.
The Shrike even thoughtfully provided a vegetarian gluten free option.
Here is the Shrike whose pantry is shown above!
"I is a good provider, I hope the girls are impressed. Wait! Here comes one now!"
"Hey big boy, you want some of this?"
(She displayed over and over, but the male just stood there....)
"Sorry, baby, having a little performance anxiety... there's a photographer across the parking lot. Maybe another time, luv?"
"Maybe I should have used some Listerine brand Beakwash for fresher beaks!"
Oh, and this was the nest that I had originally started out to take a picture of. It was very foggy, so I couldn't get a good picture after all that.
