The Big Picture is Ugly

I've been expecting this, with a sense of dreadful foreboding. Today's Big Picture features 40 large-format photos from the Gulf spill.
I typically don't click on the blacked-out images with "graphic content," a practice that is only really feasible on the web, and one I really appreciate. I don't want to see gruesome and grizzly.
But some of these photos, including the two above, made me wince. Not saying that you shouldn't look at them- you should. This is our fault. We made this mess. We killed these animals. Just sayin' it doesn't make for a pretty picture.
