Day of the Dead (Warning You May Find Images Upsetting)

This challenge closed over 6 years ago.

The Challenge

My most favourite place in the world has to be Mexico, such a beautiful country with wonderful people and delicious food but I also love the culture and the Mexican history.

I know that most people in the UK have a stigma surrounding death, we don’t like to talk about it and find it morbid. I guess it can be quite a sad event but we all know that its a sure thing eventually.

In Mexico they celebrate their dead every year by having a big festival ‘Day of the Dead’. So what with Halloween coming up and now this I’m going to be very controversial and ask that this challenge is for anything death related only in the animal world.

These can include dead animals you may of come across, bones etc. Animals being hunted or eaten.

Images must be natural NO HUMAN intervention and NO CRUELTY.
