I found this poor soul on one of my walks recently. I didn’t have much time to worry about things like focus or composition as this was at the side of a very busy road. Basically, what I’m saying is: I’m a daredevil but I’m not a complete idiot. Safety first when out walking.

So, yeah, I found this dead bird on the side of the road and I took exactly two photos of it in between bursts of traffic.

You’ll never hear of me dying for a photo. Not this gal. Unless I die of sheer joy while photographing a concert on my bucket list. I just won’t die because I took some ill-advised risk for the shot. Nope. This is as close as I get.

P.S. if you click on the photo and zoom in, you’ll see the ants had already begun their part in the recycling chain.


  1. A really nice capture. There is beauty in death as in everything else. Love the darkness/light and how the nearest feathers are in sharp relief, as if they’re trying to keep living…

  2. Not bad for a cellphone pic, eh?

    I thought this bird was beautiful, too. Like you said, beauty in death.
