flightless


flightless, originally uploaded by Wahj.

Found this bird squashed on the pavement. The action of countless cars driving over it had mummified it so only yellow bone and a few feathers remained. It's funny that the feathers are monochrome and the bones are yellow - for some reason, you'd expect it the other way around, bone-white on the bones and vibrant on the plumage, but that's the way it is.
