Biker Richard Hermosillo assists a mother duck cross East Northern Lights Boulevard with her ducklings midday Friday July 13, 2012 at Lake Otis Parkway. The crew made it across safely with the escort and cooperation from first westbound and then eastbound motorists. "I couldn't let those little ducklings be killed without a chance," he said."So I took a chance that I could do something about it. It's not like I rushed a machine gun or ran into a burning building. I was just there and could afford a minute."
