Really not sure what it is, Barbs, but most likely a sheep, though it does look uncommonly like a human Sad. The vultures have been busy cleaning the area, they leave nothing but bones. What did you have for dinner that night, spare ribs WinkWink Well captured, though rather gruesome Sad Carol

Doesn't look human but can't be sure as no skull - did you take that as a trophy perhaps Barbara GrinTongue. Moira

I'm impressed, Barbara, didn't realise your camera had x-ray potential.

So glad you made is safely back down again. One can never know, given what happened to the previous visitor to those heights! Crows, Ravens, Foxes and Badgers are always on the lookout for something to devour. Badgers could do this to any sheep within a day!

A rather macabre find, however it certainly makes for a great image. "That reminds me I shall have to sign up to Weight Watchers again?" GrinGrinGrin

Picked clean by the birds and insects, the way of all flesh whether in town or country.


macabre laughter off camera.

Natures undertakers are always at work! Barbara they never ceese! and there are plenty of them! makes a rather abstract shot to my way of thinking lol.; nicely polished and mounted the bones would look good too, like it nice one regards Leon,GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin The Tibetans never waste bones even human ones are recycled and carved, great material for carving.Wink

It's not Halloween yet is it.Proberbly the FOX or ONE OF HIS CRUEL friend is responsible for this,and this is why I say I dont like the Fox.
This is not something you would like to see happening all the time especially in spring when it's lambing time.

Nature, unlike we humans, does not waste resources, especially food, Barbara. There would have been hundreds of small critters and insects feasting on a mela like that.
You could have taken the bones home with you and made some broth with them.Wink
