This could be an upsetting image for some people so I apologise in advance for any discomfort that may have been caused when viewing.
I was walking around (as I do) a few weeks ago when I came across this dead mouse at the side of a road. I think it was killed by a cat that had been playing around with it, which is quite sad really.
At first I just stared at it and then realised that I couldn’t let this opportunity go to waste, so I took off my lens cap and got some shots.
This is a crop (about 3/5ths) of the original photograph.
