The first of the early morning light filters in. Your world transforms from the quiet calm of dark to the frenetic movement of light.
Moving as a group you begin the daily tasks of seeking food. Following the familiar paths, you find success, and failure, but enough to survive for another day.
Suddenly, movement from above, the group scatters in seemingly disorganized patterns of survival developed over eons of evolution. Effective for the many, but not for the one.
Removed from the comfort of your familiar world you gasp for air, gripped by a force above you, rising higher and higher, until the motion stops……and the terrifying last, brief, moments of life are torn from you.
Imagine you start the day, driven by a hunger. You search and search for a way to satisfy your need. Hours on hours you seek a way to sustain yourself and those dependent on you for their survival.
Then you see an opportunity. Using all your skills you track, stalk, plan, and pounce at the right moment. Seizing the life sustaining element, you return to those depending on your success.
Some survive, some succumb. Sustained and sustenance is a narrow divide.
