Mr. C.and Partridge in Wild Kingdom
Poor beautiful bird!
I prayed that God would help him die quickly, for I wasn't about to go out there and finish him off myself, and yet I knew there was no chance of recovery for the poor bird with a broken neck.
In a few minutes, Mr. C. came home, by which time the poor partridge was no longer struggling. Mr. C. removed the bird so that when the dog was out next, she wouldn't find it and think it was her new chew toy.

I took the photos because I was so struck by the beauty of this [poor, dead] bird. Look at those gorgeous neck feathers...
...and that's just one partridge. Who gives much thought to a partridge? There's so much beautiful, intricate design in the world around us. It's easy to get busy and not take the time to notice such things. What an amazing creation. What an awesome, generous Creator.
Happy Valentine's Day, friends.
