Just then a huge semi came barreling down the road and drove over the top of “Echi”.  It was with great relief that I saw the there was no squashing effect as “Echi” wobbled off across the road a little more, but then another semi and a car came down and drove over “Echi”.  Again, immense sigh as “Echi” emerged unscathed, however, it appeared that being run over multiple times had confused “Echi’s” sense of direction, so now they were heading back to the original side they started from … and straight towards my car.

      Glad you enjoyed them, Sue. I reckon the chance would only come along once in a lifetime. I must go and scan mine – I was lucky enough to snap one strolling about a paddock. 🙂 I better go do that now – ‘cos you know what I’m like! 😀
