Put The Candles Down, And Back Away From The Car Slowly

This afternoon, while I was shooting down the highway a dove flew out from a grassy area just off the shoulder, swerved into my lane, and before I had a chance to react, made thumping contact with my windshield.
Poor thing got rear-ended at 85mph, just slightly to the right of being face to ass with my sight of vision.

Naturally, it left a large dusty, and slighly moist, smudge in it's wake.

By the time I got home, and the sun had gone down, it was clearly visible against the dim-light background, closely resembling a holographic image of the Holy Spirit.
The detail is amazing.

It looks kinda like this:

Minus the three rings,of course.

I guess in the morning I gotta get out there and clean my windshield again, before some Hispanic sees it and starts lighting candles on the hood of my car.

We learned in drivers ed to not slow down for animals on the road, or you could cause an accident with the traffic behind you, so it's probably good you didn't have time to react.
Given the shape the smudge made... I have to ask... when the bird hit did you say "Oh shit" or "Holy Shit"?

actually, i yelled: "FUCK!"

and then i got sad.
i like doves.

"holy shit!" came later, when the image got clear.

i tried to get a pic of it, but it wouldnt show up.
