The hatchling had hatched but was nowhere to be found.
It looked like nature at its cruellest.
The struggle to be born and to survive.
Away on a nearby tree sat a bird looking very satisfied with itself.
I took aim, I fired, I missed, but I took the smug look off its beak. (269 characters)

    Wow! That’s an interesting twist to what Kat has written. I like your interpretation, Michael.

  2. Nice. Hubby got a catapult to protect the ducklings on the marina from the gulls and crows.

    I had considered weaving a tale about my cat for this prompt (with dreadful consequences of course for the hatchling). Thanks for taking on this fact of nature Michael. It’s definitely a reality that we live with every day. 🙂

  4. Some birds deserve that 🙂
