Pushing one's luck


Please note the sign. I watched this guy for about ten minutes! Ten minutes! I'd say he's pushing his luck.

However, I'm not sure the local hoosegow has an accommodation for such a bird so maybe they'd let him go with just a warning.

Plus I think he's from Alabama so would probably flee the jurisdiction anyway.

Gee. It looks like the enforcer to me, ready to take on anyone tied up more than 5 minutes.

I love this!

And "hoosegow"! Thank you for that. I keep a list of "dad words" and I had forgotten this one.

The look in his eye proves that he knows he is doing something illegal ;)
And oh my his legs are so long!

PS: Re. your comment on the kitesurfing... I'm with you. It's fun to watch other people do it, but not something I want to try myself. I'd rather stay on the ground!

That snow-white bird against the blue sky is very striking.

He's looking a bit authoritarian up there.

You really are creative with words, my friend. At least you, Grace, and I (in the CDP community) have featured first this week!

Yeah you can tell he's a juvenile delinquent just by the sneer on his face.

That should have said featured "birds" this week. Sorry about the typo. It is confusing.
