Road Kill

A dear carcass sits along Sunshine Road in Montgomery County, MD, after (most likely) getting hit and killed by a vehicle.  After buzzards devoured a fitting meal, the hoofs were the only body part left of the deer.

This project is somewhat similar to going on a daily scavenger hunt, without a list.  So you find yourself looking around, more than you would do otherwise.  I drove past this scene early this morning.  About 20 yards of the road I saw the remains of the deer sticking out of the frozen ground.  So I referenced it in my head.  On the way home later, I drove into the field and the first thought was , “No photo here.”  Until I got on top of it and saw the hoofs.  Photo © 2010 by Andres R.
