Some family members have just returned from a trip to their home in Costa Rica. On their last day they found a hole in one of their screens. Soon afterwards they found what had made the hole: a fiery aracari had flown at speed into the screen, breaking its neck in doing so.
An avian tragedy. I’ll maybe post a few more photos of this creature, but in the meantime, here’s one. The picture leapt out from the others. I love it. It’s the arse end of a dead bird on a floor. You’d think there’d be no point in even looking at such a thing. You wouldn’t think such a photo could be beautiful.
I think it is.
