      This offensive photograph should be a choice to see upon signing in, not forced upon us. Flickr is once again forcing users to see photos that are offensive. We should have a choice. Seeing a violent act is NOT acceptable as a sign in photo. This is just wrong. This is a photo of a bird killing a fish. What the hell is wrong with Flickr? They cannot manage themselves. The "photographer" is making fun of this with his ignorant title and should be ashamed. This is indicative of a society that is in decline and highly insensitive.

      C in the clouds Nothing offensive about this photo! The egret (a kind of bird) is not killing the little fish. The egret went to some trouble to orient the fish head first so that it would slide down the hatch easily without being unnecessarily roughed up, thereby remaining in good shape to swim around in the egret's belly with the rest of the little fish, all doing their part in the big scheme of things.

      that is a stunning picture! love it so much! keep up the great work!

      C in the clouds It is eating! an Each egret probably eats about 10 fish per day - If they couldnt manage this they die. Distributing tofu to them wont work.

      We humans should eat less meat. More of us should be vegetarian. We are omnivores and have the means to make these choices for the sake of the planet.

      We cant impose these same choices on obligate predators.

      The idea that we shouldnt enjoy artistic and striking pictures of birds eating insects and fish is not sensible. Spiders eating flies, wasps or flies that have emerged from larvae that live in other creatures. A bird on a bird table eating beef suet etc.. Think about it for a moment and reflect.
