Here are a few to get us going:

Flying south for the winter, I saw a huge flock of swallows.

Low in the water and loaded with cargo, the sailors thought the tiny ship would sink.

Refusing to wear suntan lotion at the beach, my nose was completely burned.

Discouraged by the prognosis, the surgery was called off.

The robber ran from the policeman, still holding the money in his hands.

After being whipped fiercely, the cook boiled the egg.

Flitting gaily from flower to flower, the football player watched the bee.
