Mel P. And you are perfectly entitled to it. But you most certainly certainly didn't have it "thrust upon you". The photograph was clearly labelled it was made abundantly clear what it consisted of. That was pretty easy to ignore so it doesn't exactly qualify as having anything thrust upon anyone does it?
Who's pretending? i was hoping not to be patronised, but I suppose I asked for it. Of course I know how it is - I'm not naive.I prefer not to have it thrust upon me is all I'm saying. Just my opinion, just like yours.
Wish I'd captured the photo. it was great! Well said Anton
I agree Anton. I don't particularly want to view animals being killed. But I am interested in the interactions between these species. How long can this pride of lions effectively camp this waterhole, it must be self defeating if their intended prey is kept away, we haven't seen any buffalo, zebra, wildebeest for a few days and the impala have stayed away most of the day! The smell of any carcasses must be a big deterrent to the herds coming for a drink!
Well said Anton
Your quite right Anton.
Lioness drinking far left.
I don't know what the fuss is all about. This is wildlife in all its authenticity. It's beautiful and savage and cruel, and it's the way it is. There's no good guys and bad guys here. Just members of various species trying to survive and procreate, al in their different ways. Kills are just as much part of it as cute herbiore grazing. You can't possibly enjoy wildlife if you start pretending it is anything other than what it is because you simply can't have one without the other.
Yes, it's a shame Maureen, I'm a veggie, but appreciate the way things work in the circle of life, and it was an amazing piece of photography.
Sorry photo was taken off.It was a fact of life that should be accepted along with all the other aspects involved in daily life in the wild
Mel PI have seen 2 kills from far off,no detail at all. That is near enough for me.I did not expect the detail in that photo ,but I accept it.It is the way of life
Craig your photo was real life! Sorry it was too good and was removed..
Maureen, I think we know they don't pop down the shop for a quorn burger, but there does seem to have been an inordinate amount of interest recently in things being killed. We know how this works, but seeing it is of no interest to me.
Oh..Craigs photo has been withdrawn, i guess it didn't meat the criteria.
