So I mentioned that in southwest British Columbia, this is the time of year (slightly warmer temps & lots of rain) when worms start appearing on the paths & secondary roads. I don't know what they're doing there. Crossing the road? Flooded out of their mud-soaked enclosure? Anyway, the challenge is to avoid running over them, both for humanitarian (animalitarian?) and practical reasons, like not having to scrape dead worms off the bottom bracket.
So this morning I'm riding to work on the usual bike route, and this crow lands up the road in front of me, picks up a worm off the road, and gleefully trots off just as I arrive. He's got the poor worm hanging out of his beak. Must be like shooting ducks in a barrel, just grabbing worms off the roadway. But you'd never see stuff like this driving, or in a bus.
Sorry, couldn't pull the camera out in time. (I know most of you like pix)
