Survival of the fittest?

Windermere Prep Gym
WPS volleyball practice yesterday.

 

Florida Hawk eating it's prey
Came home from football game to see hawk having a meal.

 

Nature is organized so that is comes down to a simple premise, survival of the fittest. Same with High School sports.

In the gym because of the football game lightning delay, we watched the girls volleyball team practice for 30 minutes. The coach was running them through one drill after another.

Why?

So they can compete and hopefully, win.

Came home to a hawk in the front yard. We could tell it had caught some prey but couldn’t tell what. And then as we pulled into the drive it became clear…it was a squirrel. Too heavy for the hawk to fly away.

One must die so another might live.

Life is both beautiful and brutal.
