I keep coming back to this one. It's so simple and dark even; yet it brings to mind questions that just seem to have no answers.

Was this a malicious act? Or was the killer perhaps color-blind and just didn't see the little guy?
Could this have been a hate crime by one of the many peep detractors out there?
And what about the expression of surprise and even defiant anger on that little pink face? Was there an ugly confrontation first? Did the bunny lash out, only to discover too late that he was biting off more than he could chew?
What does this say about a society that turns a blind eye to such things. And what can we discern about the nature of wing-tips?

So many questions - no answers... Alas, poor bunny, we knew him well!

A striking and poignant capture!

I never knew before this that there were so many ways to destroy a peep. This one is simple, but effectively done.

Poor lil' guy! I really like the composition of this shot. The crispness along with the muted earth tones then the pink bunny is a nice touch.
