[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most pictures on this site are of beautifull living creatures. But there is an end to everything. The heron found his end some time ago and will step by step be replaced by other players in nature. The young tree took the direct way to grow and the insects are cleaning up the body.

If you like, have a look at the whole range in the theme City Nature.

Hendrik, your words well. To the photo there is no point of negativ criticism. Very good picture and composition. Excellent sharpness and colours. Well done.

Death is part of life. This picture makes one curious what happened to the bird. Any suspects ?
A good contrast to the "happy life" pictures (which i also enjoy !)

  • Great

You are so right with this and it is human to look the other way, It is called fear not to think of death. Thanks for bringing us back to reality.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Sad, but great photo.
Your Note, also, discuss a problem from photography and itīs finnality.
Most important, for me, from your shot is sharpness and lighting.
