That picture of the little bird reminds me of an unforgettable poem (and quote below), by author/poet D.H. Lawrence called: Self Pity. "I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself."
"Not to hurt our humble brethren (the animals) is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission to be of service to them whenever they require it." - St. Francis of Assisi
Our friend Lili (youtube.com/user/Lianarte) sent me the name of the photographer of the little bird - Mikael Sundberg. Thank you so much Lili and Mikael!
