oh my god.... I love your images, they're spectacular, but might want to consider having a filter on this one, seeing animals hit like this really breaks my heart :(

i didn't realise this was a kangaroo at first. in a way the species of the animal makes this shot all the more outstanding and unusual, because to most people they're unusual animals. :) i love the colours and the car blurring by emphasises the stillness, and swiftness, of the death. a sad photo, but one i really like. :)

That's such a sad and emotinal shot. It may sound a bit Macabre if we speek how good photographed this shot is but this is photo looks very amazing and let us feel the sadness and the pain. The colors are amazing and the effect on the car is perfect chosen. A very touching and amazing shot!

HAHA!! Sorry I've always wanted to take a shot like this! I always think about stopping by the roadside and taking a picture of the animal. Usually around here it's Deer. Brilliantly morbid shot!
I love the motion blurred car, just adds to it all. I do feel sorry for the poor kangaroo, though it he does make for such an entertaining picture.

This is heartbreaking. I always feel so much for the animals, no matter the species, laying the sides of the roads.

This is a great capture, though. I feel the blur of the car really helps to get the mood across.
