Macabre Sight!

When I blogged about the abandoned building, I promised to tell you what had spooked me. Well, I was concentrating so hard on photographing the ruins, it came as a real shock to look down and find the skeleton of an animal at my feet. It was so unexpected and gave me quite a start. As the barbed wire surrounding the site was so extensive, I have trouble working out how it got inside. I imagine it to be the remains of a roe deer? Nature was reclaiming it, but it only when you compose a photograph that you realise what interesting patterns are left behind.

  1. Holy cow, or holy deer, you weren't kidding... poor thing... do you suppose it somehow got over the barbed wire, but could get back out ? I wonder what happened... The process of decay when a once living creature is concerned is fascinating indeed. I'll bet you were suprised ! I imagine the odor might have been a bit dicey too...
