Magpie Shadow Boxing

On a Sunday afternoon session around the block, we had left the dirt across Shillings Lane heading back to Calliope with the sun behind us. Now there's a magpie along that section that isn't too bright.

This poor bird thought he would have a few swoops at us, but failed to see that we could see his shadow - as well as our own - on the road ahead of us. Every time he swooped, we countered attacked with flying hands. With perfect timing.

Oh well, it was funny to us - very funny - but I guess you had to be there.
