Dead Deer

A little something from the road This is a deer I found and I must say this was a crazy thing to see up close and personal more to come from this… Often people wonder what the story is with dead animals on the side of the road I honestly have no idea what this animals story is, the only thing I do know about this deer is that it was quite a sad and beautiful site!

The Dead Deer…

What are your thoughts on this?

  • monica

    Here’s the story, the deer was in the road, some asshole who was driving too fast and hit him, and now the deer is dead

  • Alice

    The light looks amazing like it’s the deer’s soul or something, definitely beautiful

  • Benny

    Poor deer, at least you made the most of the situation

  • Kelly

    I always get sad when I see hit dead animals on the road, especially dogs

  • Neil

    This is incredible

  • Riley

    The story is we as humans have overdeveloped to the point where animals have to risk their lives in ways that aren’t natural. This picture is a sadly beautiful example.

  • Lauren

    Very moving stuff Mr. Shields

  • michelle

    this makes me sad :(

  • Steven

    You could make some good stew with that deer. Maybe a nice jacket as well. You see you gotta maximize every opportunity you get in life.

  • Pete

    I remember when I was a little kid on my way to school my mom hit a cat, I was so upset she let me stay home for the day.

    accidents unfortunately are a part of life

    i don’t ever really wonder what the story is, I just assume they got hit by a car.

    Death is a part of life, one way or another it’s going to happen to us all.

    its sad to think about but i think i’ve seen more dead deer in my life than living ones.

  • Keelee

    If we had flying cars this wouldn’t be a problem, I’m just saying

    It’s amazing how you’ve taken something that i cringe at while driving and make it beautiful. It’s really a peaceful picture, like he’s going home in the instance you snapped the photo. Amazing!

  • Matthew

    I live very nearby this, in the county where Tyler and his Compainions were arrested for hanging over the interstate Bridge and taking pictures. Deer are very common, and the person that said an asshole hit the deer, it might have been, but deer are like ants here and are everywhere so we hit one and either you car is totaled or oyur truck is fine. but nonetheless, an amazing picture
