Playing Chicken


...with semi-trucks! 

I took this picture while on the road with Bill.
Birds (and other critters) do this far too often. 
I am still amazed that I captured this encounter! 
Yes, they made it across safely!

  2. Lucky crazy birds, they got away just in the nick of time. Glad they're OK.
    Good shot, by the way.

  6. Lots of these guys are picking at some sort of road kill, and fly up to late!

  7. We saw a turkey vulture get hit by a UPS truck on our way here. We were really glad it wasn't us. Our luck would be that it would hit the cracked part of the windshield and join us on our drive.

  9. Oh my, dangerous! But, if they'd only shouted the answer, as to why they were crossing the road?! Hehehe, it could help answer why the chicken crosses the road! Enjoy your day!

  12. Yes, i know they want to eat whatever that is in the road. but sometimes i'm afraid they will take one bite too many and not dodge fast enough!

  15. Vultures especially seem to be getting braver and braver...sitting on their meal until I feel like I have to honk to make sure they do fly away before I hit them.

  16. Great action shot there. - What I hate are the squirrels who run out in the middle of the road and then can't decide which way to go when they see a car coming. I call them, "Suicidal"

  17. runnnnnn! That's a great shot. I'm so happy they made it across, but it would be understandable if they didn't.
