Highway Monster

We treated this scary monster with awe and respect. It was intimidating. But also fascinating, awesome – we were excited our walk coincided with this hedge cutter returning from a paddock on one side of the road, then crossing the road and heading up a driveway directly opposite.

Nigel told me the next one was a completely accidental shot!

  1. Here in the UK – and maybe in NZ too? – you can’t get a haircut right now because of the Covid-19 social distancing rules. Maybe this piece of kit is the perfect solution … but then again, maybe not! 🙂

  2. That is quite the piece of monster machinery–you did well to give it a wide berth. I’d like to borrow it to pay some midnight attention to a neighbor’s trees that obstruct our ideal view.
