A ride with animals ...

Well, only a couple. After leaving fencing last night, I was riding along at a reasonable speed, when a cat shot out from the side of the road, apparently aiming to fling itself right under my front wheel. I braked a lot, and it finally noticed me and ran back the way it came (poing !).

And further on, while riding by the river, a number of bats flew silently by overhead. This probably means that if I pay attention around sunset at our house they'll be flying by in large numbers - it's quiet eerie, seeing dozens or hundreds of flying animals going by without a sound. Cool, though :)

(the cat was a patchy white colour, I don't know how that figures into calculations of who was the luckier in that little exchange ;-) )
