little dead bird

I found it on the middle of the pavement, in my street. It was so small and I decided to grab my camera and take pictures of it. I also picked it up, which is a big thing for me because I'm AFRAID of dead animals, I'm not joking, my hands were shaking ahhaha. But I couldn't leave it there, where it could be crushed any minute! So I left it in the bushes, where it will probably be eaten by a cat or dog anyway.. but that way I won't have to see it's crushed little body everytime I walk into my street. I buried it in the leaves :) It was so light and soft, I couldn't help but petting it! It was still warm and I hadn't seen it on my way, only on the way back, so it must have died just half an hour or so!

 

(I feel a bit dirty and washed my hands at least 3 times with desinfection shizzle, I can now just eat with my hands, right? Haha I feel so neurotic!)

 

(also this picture is kinda cliché, I know, but hey everyone on Flickr has to HAVE a picture of a dead bird in their hands, y/y?)
