Can you tell what it is yet?

It is a curious thing when a seemingly dead, rather amorphous mammal, appears to be wriggling all over, and constantly moving, like some macabre, undead glove puppet. All sorts of beasts were enjoying joining in with this fine example of the phenomenon (identifiable as a mole, by its digging claws). Stars of the show were these burying beetles (here joined by a blow fly). 17.6.05.

If you want happier thoughts, to see off the nightmares, here is a soothing photo of a squeaky baby Long-eared Owl. Sweet dreams...
