Krtko and the Predatory Bird

I’m still greatly enjoying my Slovak weekly calendar featuring the adventures of Krtko the mole and his snowman friend Buckethead. Buckethead was featured in last week’s picture, but I fear he won’t last much longer, certainly not much past February.

Buckethead doesn’t make an appearance this week, though. Instead Krtko has cheerfully fallen prey to a Eurasian steppe hawk, who will soon disembowel him. Maybe it’s a mother hawk who will tear Krtko into manageable chunks for her young back in the nest.


Oh, Krtko. I can’t wait to see what antics you’ll get into next. I look forward to a new Krtko picture every Monday.
