Death in the Sun

The extreme temperatures of the last few days seem to be taking their toll on the wildlife.

Yesterday I found the body of a baby rabbit, it must literally have dropped dead within minutes of my passing, and today I found the body of a tiny shrew. Both perfect in death but I hadn't the heart to photograph them hence the photograph of a live shrew courtesy of © Copyright Donald Bain and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence.

Some say "everything comes in threes" so I'm rather dreading what I might find tomorrow.
