Well friends, I do not want to offend your sence of beauty, but to present a branch of biology, named Scatology.

In medicine and biology, scatology or coprology is the study of feces. Scatological studies allow one to determine a wide range of biological information about a creature, including its diet (and thus where it has been), healthiness, and diseases such as tapeworms. The word derives from the Greek σκωρ (genitive σκατος, modern σκατά) meaning "feces".

I've captured these ones on a mountain trek, troden by goats and deers in Vitosha reserve.

Hello Anton,
This is a topic not so popular. Most of feces are left or use as natural fertilizer. Interesting to see. POV, DOF, Sharpness are great. TFS
