Motorists on the Rickenbacker Causeway Sunday afternoon got an eyeful - and it wasn’t the breathtaking waterfront view.

A naked man, within view of east and west traffic, was seen walking on the bridge headed toward downtown Miami.

It’s unclear how the man got on the bridge, or if he was making a statement.

“We were just driving by, and there he was: A totally naked man; we couldn’t believe it at first,” said Francesca Ferrante, who had her mother in the car, headed to the St. Sophia Greek Festival in Miami.

Ferrante, a Key Biscayne resident, snapped a picture of the man and sent it to Miami Herald. We have edited the photo to cover part of the man’s nakedness.

The snapshot, taken from behind, shows the man on the bridge, the downtown Miami skyline in the background.

Drivers apparently called police. Within minutes, Miami-Dade units arrived at hauled the unidentified man away, Ferrante said.

Did you see the naked man walking on the Rickenbacker? Let us know.
