Keeping Baby Safe

I don't normally use the word "cute" to describe large earth-moving equipment, however, this little family grouping made me do a U-turn to grab a photo.
 Keeping baby safe.

Thanks, Hilary!

Big machines can be very enticing for photographers.

Children are fascinated by them. Why not grown ups, too? Great machines and cute baby.

LOVE this! You're quick on the draw, girl. Great catch! Reminds of the Momma Elephants protecting their babies.

William Kendall said...

Funny!

Stephen Hayes said...

It's easy and often fun to animate inanimate objects. It does look like that little machine is being protected by a parent.

Ileana said...

My Grand sons watch a YouTube thing "Mighty Machines" for hours.

Dicky Bird said...

Isn't there a Stephen King movie about trucks that come to life? I don't know about you, but I'm running! ;-)

Pom Pom said...

Lovely captures !The big excavator protecting the smaller sized dozens :) I used to market Caterpillar products for several years in India !

S. J. Qualls said...

Cool concept of machines imitating life, imitating art, imitating life.
Great idea, T!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Do I sense a deeply hidden desire to be a heavy equipment operator?

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Awww, you do make construction cute :-)

They resemble bugs to my first glance. Cute fits their description very well.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I never thought I'd call large equipment sweet, but this IS sweet. :-)

Sylvia K said...

Oh, how fun!! And what a great shot -- as always!! And, yes, this IS sweet indeed -- particularly for a tractor!!! Love it!!!

That is very cute. A good idea to keep baby safe.

In this case, cute works!

Gail said...

The title is perfect.

Margaret Adamson said...

I didn't really see it in the first shot but the second shot certainly suited the title Tex.

Margie said...

Alrighty then....cute T!

Nancy J said...

This reminds me of our grandson's story book " The little Yellow Digger" who saved the day in a dire situation . So it goes to show, the biggest is not always the best. Lovely photo, and super captions. Jean

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Yes, this is definitely cute :))
I would have taken that also, if I were in your place.
I love people that keep their eyes open to the world
while driving around. :))

Makes me want to write a story about the baby earthmover whose mommy and daddy had to come rescue him. Cute stuff!

Gail Dixon said...

Bob Bushell said...

Awe.

Daniel LaFrance said...

Them there are some cool cats!

Mariusz from Nowy Sacz said...

I think that they can not fly :)))
But perhaps could be a bird house? :)

Andrew Fulton said...

Well spotted... that's a wonderful shot.

Kate said...

"Cute" family group" ?? You have a lively imagination!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

It certainly makes it a lot harder to steal it. I think it would be fun to operate any one of those bad boys.

mick said...

Yes, I agree - very cute!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

It reminds me of when our boys were little and excavated our backyard with their Tonka trucks!

Debbie said...

You have to do that you know, tricks of the trade!! These machines have master keys, a CAT key will start any machine so they are easy to steal. They all look too familiar for me, some we still have ;)

Our photos said...

Wow, this is cute !

Gosia k said...

Keeping baby from being stolen! LOL! I have to say it's a good idea!

Oh yea, always amazes me that someone could actually steal one (or even parts off of it):@)

A Quiet Corner said...

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, What a unique post. Yes, the heavy equipment gets stolen sometimes. This method of parking is helpful in keeping the dozers and other equipment safer. Have a good Tuesday tomorrow!

Felicia said...

they are rather cute.

carolann said...

Cute works in our land of Lands in Canada.

Cheri Savory Spoon said...

Your right this is "cute", pretty cool how you saw the pic in this, photographer's eye!

Very observant! Yup, that equipment is quite costly to replace.

Lindy

Primitive Stars said...

Evening, that is so cute, Francine.

Perfect title.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Glad you made that U-turn for taking these photos. Very special and yes, like a baby...
Hugs,

Rory Bore said...

it does rather look like that bucket arm is protecting the smaller one. I think "cute" is exactly right.

Jimmy said...

Very cool, it does look a bit protective there.

Stephanie said...

Great shots!

1st Man said...

You know it took me a minute to see the 'little guy'. Great catch to snap the photo.

Angela said...

My son would go crazy if he seen that in person! He loves machinery of all kinds.

Wow - those are some big equipment alright!

Aww... Isn't that special.
Nice find!

Lynne said...

I call that "adorable" too . . .

RA Berks said...

lol...I can hardly see the computer because of all the emotional tears in my eyes right now....lol. Off to find some tissues. It does look there is some motherly instincts taking place there.

Rita said...

LOL! ;)

Jeevan said...

I can’t avoid the word cute here :) moving really

diane b said...

Good spotting. It sure does look like keeping baby safe.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Yes, it does appear that way! They remind me of dinosaurs :)

Jacquelineand.... said...

Definitely cute, and well worth a u-turn!

MarmePurl said...

As a rowdy teen, my husband and friends hot wired some construction equipment and played around with them a bit....so the story goes. Looks like the owners of these have figured out a way to keep the current rowdy ones from doing the same.

Miss Val's Creations said...

That is strangely cute!

nookworm said...

Really is CUTE! and protective.

Black Jack's Carol said...

My Dad would have loved that shot! Adorable.. cause I refuse to use the "cute" word :)

Justin Carfagnini said...

Ha that does remind me of something right out of a Pixar or Disney movie like Cars.

I think it's cool you saw a family there. Kidnappers would like nothing better than to steal that baby.

It protects, Teresa :))

That is rather sweet.....good catch!

Hilary said...

Terri Buster said...

This reminds me of when I see a welder hung up in the sky to keep it safe...don't think I have ever seen them safe guard a bucket loader before. Nice capture!

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

Smiling!

Karen S. said...

My exact feelings too! Great capture!

The Queen Jester said...

That's a very maternal gesture for the crane to be taking....good photo.

Helma said...

My goodness! That's quite a difference. The large excavator small eats lol ...... Nice to see.

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...
