A female sparrow is injured and her condition is soon fatal. She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.
Here her mate brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion.
He brought her food again but was shocked to find her dead.
He tried to move her.
Aware that his mate is dead and will never come back to him again, he cries with adoring love.
He stood beside her, saddened by her death.
