Deer have crossed the road in front of me but I’ve never seen five horses gallop in front of me on my drive to work. I braked quickly as did others. Not surprisingly, I was the only one to pull over onto a grassy shoulder. It would have been dangerous for me to get out of my car, so I sat in the driver seat and enjoyed the view. After their charge across the road, they stopped to graze.
Someone left the gate open. While they enjoyed their freedom, I was awestruck and a little worried. Will they make it home? There is a horse farm near them and I was hoping they wouldn’t try to cross the road again.
I wished that I wasn't in such a hurry to get to work and had instead taken time to photo them at their best angles.
Or, maybe they were frightened. I don't think so.
Romping and heading home. I envied their freedom, in a way…
On the way to the bank today, I saw a brown bird on the ground next to an interstate exit ramp. It resembled a Brown Thrasher but was deeper in color. It didn't walk, but hopped straight up and down without wing movement. I didn't have time to get a shot because the light turned green.
While waiting for my vehicle to be serviced, I opted to walk around the back of the dealership instead of sitting in one of those waiting rooms. It was cloudy then and threatening rain but I just couldn't sit there for an hour.
I found a sediment pond and a lifer. It’s good to venture out! I need help with this ID.
Unexpected pleasures are so special.
They keep me alive and going.
