WHEN A SWALLOW FALLS.....
Here a female mate is injured and the condition is soon fatal. She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.
Here he brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion.
He brought her food again, but was shocked to find her dead.
Aware that his sweetheart is dead and will never come back to him again, He cries with adoring love.
He stood beside her, saddened of her death. Finally aware she would never return to him, he stayed beside her body chirping out his sadness and sorrow.
Millions of people cried after seeing these photos in America , Europe, Australia , and even India. The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France. All copies of that edition were sold out on the day these pictures were published.
