Looks like he's buried up to his armpits! Took me a moment to figure this all out. Fab shot!

Whew! Glad he's ok; at first glance I thought that was a squirrel or skunk curled up in his jacket:)

As someone who occasionally rides a bike - and has had a couple accidents, i feared the worst, but didn't see the device until later.

I too at first thought it was a skunk or a cat curled up inside of something, then slowly everything came into focus and I realized he was texting, but I still could not find the handlebars and wondered if he had been in an accident and fallen over the bridge. I wonder if anyone checked to see if he was okay.

God bless.

What a stunning capture - it took several seconds for me to figure out what he was doing - looks like an accident waiting to happen! :) Great!
