Fallen

As disturbing as this is for you to see, and frankly for me to photograph, the sight of a dead baby bird is still fascinating. Its skin, its veins, its undeveloped muscles, yet seemingly fully-developed claws.

It also raises several questions: How did it get here? Did it fall out of the nest? Was it pushed? If so, why? Was it the runt? Shunned by its mother?

Rest in peace, little guy.
