There is a deer skeleton, or most of one, in the south woods. A scattering of ribs, vertebrae, long bones and this wonderful skull.
The bones have obviously been there for some time, developing an amazing texture and delicacy. I've gone in a few times to photograph them in place, but the fallen leaves have now covered most of it up.
So, yes - I picked up the skull and brought it home.
These were taken in the last few minutes of light, which seemed appropriate. And I couldn't resist sharing my own loooong silhouette.
