how about river kill? the carcass of a huge boar raccoon a neighbor and i killed the other day is staying at the edge of the river, just under the water. this coon was fighting my neighbor's brittany and my shi-tzu and miniature dachshund ...

oh, one other thing: did y'all know the more you run over a frog (plug in your own animal), the flatter it gets?

I have a pic of a bloted dead cow floating up the Gambia River in Africa.
The same river the kitchen lad from the 'hotel' I was staying at washed the dishes in.
Very Nice !

I have a very emotional reaction to dead animals... it makes me sad. Who knows, I may be soft in the head... But then, only racoons, cats and dogs really get to me. I like the strange atmosphere in the pidgeon's shot (the one on cobblestone). Nice job!

Now, that said, I don't think I'll return to this thread. The dog and the raccoon were more disturbing than I can handle... Ciao!

For me, it's dogs, cats, fox, wolves, and deer roadkill that bothers me.

we might consider these photos as memorials, in a macabre sort of way ...

No fair, robklurfield , I think you showed two halves of the same deer in two separate shots, it should count as one.

Hand rolled cigarette indeed

Good shot, but I'm have a feeling I know what inspired it.

dying is a big part of living. not being glib. this is something most of us see every day. it is not a celebration, but rather a recognition that these things happen ...

This bothers me a little also.

Dead humans might not even bother me as much. I'm not sure why.

Why don't we start a thread of camera roadkill shots? Your choice-- film or digital.

...like a nice shot of a Canon 5D, run over by a Walmart tractor-trailer delivering goods from China. We see the camera flattened, polycarbonate splinters fill the air, just as the soul of the camera leaves it's body-- wait, this camera has no soul!
