The circle of life in my front yard 

This morning a hawk came down and grabbed himself some duckling for breakfast. I had hoped to get a picture, but one of the teens in the apartment complex was apparently very upset and tried to free the duckling, a pointless endeavor as it had no chance of survival after being caught by the hawk, not to mention that hawks have to eat too. It was rather tragic to see the mother duck making distress calls as the hawk killed her child on the bridge above her, but also curiously fascinating, like watching a nature documentary.
