life like

i saw this while walking down the street… i think that it is amazing – i know others might not agree… the blue in the wings and the different purples go beautifully with the slate and medium grey and i love that the orange peal is there – all in all a fantastic color story! i know it is morbid but i have always been fascinated with dead creatures (in a second hand kinda way- nature lab/ passing one on the street sort of way) the dpi on this camera is really great so you can see the hairs, claws and beak, even the bumpy flesh – and all without having to touch it!

on a side note i just wanted to mention that i really like the composition of this photo as well. i feel that the ground in gum and paint splatters on the sidewalk really move the eye around.
