地蔵峠 Jizo Pass
For the first time in a while, I rode the Kanabiki Falls to Takigami Park course. I was able to take a photo of an animal I hadn't been able to capture with my camera yet. In a comment on my last blog entry, I mentioned that I'd like to encounter a monkey next. Well, what did I encounter this time? Here's a hint. This animal can't be found in my home country of New Zealand. Got it!!!
I've just reached the Jizo Pass intersection. It stinks. Something's dead. Suddenly I see an animal. It still hasn't seen me. Cool!!! I freeze and very very slowly reach for my camera. I move my arm really slowly. Oh no!!! It's staring my way. Now it's likely to flee, so even though I can't see the screen on my camera, I start taking photos. You're kidding!!! Now it has moved out of view behind the sign post (while still staring at me). I can't get a photo from here. If I move it will take off. Nooooo!!! It's taken off down the road. Wonder if I got a photo.
