Alas, poor chickadee! by mwerner

Alas, poor chickadee!

This is the skull of a Black-capped Chickadee. Not including the bill, it is about the size of a baby fingernail, and extremely, extremely fragile. I have to pick it up by the bill, because if I tried to pick it up by the brain case with my fingers, I would crumple the brain case no matter how gentle I tried to be. This shot was lit with a single flash in front of and to the left of the skull.
Oh my! Beautiful and poignant

What a find.. with the beak seeming to retain its colour
