There were two.
Crossing the road.
When I saw them, I slowed down.
When they saw me coming they started waddling fast.
Away from the car...
... in the same direction I was travelling.
It made me think of problem solving in maths at school. "If you have a vehicle travelling at 60km/hr how much does it have to slow down in order to miss ducks travelling at x km/hr in the same direction?
The answer is: It depends when they work out that the waddling is just not going to help and they need to fly.
How many of the ducks did I hit?
... Approximately None!
What's on my heart
