POTD: A Work in Progress

A Work in Progress
Bozeman, Montana

A month or so ago I placed this recently deceased pack rat in this pot in our yard where I can hopefully recover it when it is nothing but a skeleton. The plan was to photograph it at that point. But walking by it recently I got the idea it might make an interesting, although gruesome, still life in mid-decay. I suppose I could have been working on a whole sequence of photos documenting the decay process but for now I’m thinking one mid-process photo is perhaps more than sufficient.
