The Kill

EER_0595 (2)

I was watching a beautiful National Geographic show on the animals of Yellowstone. At one point two grizzly bears were fighting over the carcass of a dead elk at the edge of the river. As they pushed and shoved, the crows sitting on the limb nearby took advantage of the situation.

While the grizzlies fight

over who owns the carcass…

Crows will eat their fill

This is one of my early paintings, when I was just beginning to learn to paint several years ago.

  2. Beautiful painting and amazing poetry!
    I saw one video this morning when one leopard was attacking a deer, and suddenly one hyena attacked the leopard. As they kept fighting for the deer, the deer ran away from their grasp and was out of their sight within seconds!
