amazing horse fetus photograph


british photographer tim flach spotted this fetus on a visit to a vet's surgery, where the tiny foal's body had been preserved in a jar of formalin. he was so captivated by the fetus he took it home to shoot, and there's the amazing photo! the thoroughbred baby horse died when its mother succumbed to colic and perished just a quarter of the way through her pregnancy.

  9. Wow. So beautiful. I saw this before, and I never noticed that it was dead. I always thought it was this beautiful depiction of life, though I had no idea how it was captured like so. But now that I look closely, it is blue and white... not red. Clearly dead. Still... it shows just how beautiful dead can be. Shocking.
