The bird is gone but it has forgotten its legs near the flowers. It left but we guess it wanted to stay.

    That is really creepy! Do birds self-combust?

    love the composition and how the feet are mirrored in the shadows of the flowers. I really want to know what happened to this poor bird :)

    Thank you all for your sympathy.
    Renee: it was an owl I found one night while driving along the motorway between Annaba and Constantine (Algeria). I couldn't keep the bird because it was badly injured by a car going fast (as cars always do) but I kept what seemed to have escaped the slaughter.
    The bird has gone with the wind but its legs are still walking, trying to find a welcoming dream.

    Poetic in fact & wondrously curious indeeed how that is with our feet & bodies not always agreeing with one another.
