“Nature red in tooth & claw”

“Nature red in tooth & claw”: it’s not a pretty thing but you can’t fight it. Every day as I walk I pit myself against it’s unseemly predations, rescuing caterpillars from birds, wee birds from grackles, cats from dogs. I even had to pull dogs off a bird fallen from a nest. It’s one of nature’s least attractive features & this fierce little Indian myna doesn’t give a hoot as she feeds her babies an unfortunate grasshopper. (Photo by Parivartan Sharma/Reuters)
