dark day, cold night

Both of these pieces came about after I found a young bird dead in our house. Our cat, Smokey, was kind enough to, not only give us this fine present, but also drag it all over the downstairs of our house, tearing a fair amount of his feathers out. It was pretty sad to see such a young bird lying lifeless on the floor.

Text reads: The last of his warm breath withered away into the crisp night. He took his first and last flight into the shadow-filled woods, to be consumed by the land that raised him.

    I just had it outside (in the daylight) with no extra lighting. I did the effects in photoshop.
