Wow these images were very interesting yet a little disturbing to me.
Let me know how you all feel about this article.

I agree, David, that it is a very unusual phenomenon. The pictures are certainly remarkable, in a macabre way. But to be honest, my main thoughts were of sympathy for the poor creatures which must have suffered such an extremely painful passing.

Poor animals suffered from harsh nature environment. Others may think it is not so good idea to use them as art/portrait but could help too on learning more their nature and able to do something to help other animals.

Its weird how their positions are, like they are instantly frozen.. if they were in pain, one should think they were laying in a weird position after struggeling to its last breath, but here they just sit like if they were alive..

That is because the person taking the photographs repositioned the poor creatures into "pose" positions (see the article cited by David).

The water has an extremely high soda and salt content, so high that it would strip the ink off my Kodak film boxes within a few seconds

Whoa! No swimming in that lake! :)

Ah, didnt read the article since i had read it somewhere before, but there it didnt say anything about respositioning, now it makes more sense :]

I was going to mention that they were re-positioned - But you figured it out before I got a chance to get back here...
