  5. Funny, I was just going to write what Gunta wrote! Such interesting images, makes me wonder what animal they come from. Do you know? Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Hello, Susan…based upon what I do know about the mammals that can be found in our canyons and mountains here, I’m going to guess that these are the remains of a deer…or possibly a smaller moose. I believe they are too large to be either coyote or mountain lion…and probably not a goat either, given where I found them. And thank you for the well-wishes for the weekend…I hope you get enough sun to melt a bit of your new snow…. 😉

    • The essence of life and its passing…thank you, Karen…and yes, the middle surfaces of the vertebrae do have a rather fungus-like appearance, don’t they?

  8. I do so like the way you really get down to it…..literally on your hands and knees….and yet the crime scene is undisturbed…..very forensic…..and just lovely images.
