Here his wife is injured and the condition is 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. He tried to move her... a rarely-seen effort for swallows!
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 that she would never return to him, he Stood beside her body with sadness and sorrow.
And many people think animals don't have feelings...

England footballer Frank Lampard has made an angry tirade on live radio to hit back at claims made by his former fiancee.
The Chelsea star phoned James O'Brien's show on LBC 97.3 to defend himself against newspaper reports which alleged he was living in a mansion while his children stayed in a flat.
Lampard and ex-partner Elen Rives split in November last year and have two daughters, aged two and one.
Lampard told O'Brien: "Before I had kids it was all for myself and since I've had kids, every penny I earn and every ounce and every yard I run on the football pitch is for my kids. Unfortunately I've split up with my girlfriend so they're now living in a temporary flat in Fulham, Chelsea, and it's not a bad flat at all, and I'm actually buying a house at the moment which is of equal living standard if not more to mine."
His sister had been listening to the show and was angered by negative comments callers made about the footballer, which spurred the England star to phone in.
Lampard claimed Rives had unwittingly spoken to a journalist when she was "drunk". He said he and the former air hostess have agreed joint custody of their children.
And the footballer added: "Let me tell you something now, my mother died a year ago today, which has been a huge impact on my life, my family's life and my sister's life. And unfortunately that's had a huge impact on my relationship at home."
He repeatedly accused O'Brien of calling him "weak" and "scum" and went on: "The hardest part of this whole break-up for me is not waking up with my kids every day.
"So before you start insinuating and calling people weak and scum on a radio station, getting on a high horse, which you are, because I hope one day that your wife or your girlfriend doesn't come to you and say: 'I don't want to be with you anymore,' and unfortunately that means you won't see the kids for a few days a week. That will hurt with you as well but you'd have to deal with it."
The DJ gave Lampard credit for explaining himself "brilliantly" but refused to apologise for inviting calls on a story in the Daily Mail newspaper.

Total Film talked to Christian Bale about the follow-up to The Dark Knight. Here's an excerpt:
"Will we do a third movie? It's got to be the right story. You can't make something like 'The Dark Knight' and then come out with something disappointing.
"I would like it if people say, 'You'll never make a good third movie.' I say, 'OK, let's make a third movie in that case, let's prove them wrong. But that's just me. The fact is, I have to! I've signed up! Chris doesn't. So I'm in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn't want to!"
