The other day I signed up on Twitter! It was kind of on impulse, but it's been fun learning about it and hearing more from friends who are otherwise kind of quiet online. If you are on Twitter and would like to follow me, I'm @GreengatePhoto. If not, you're not missing anything.
No, I'm still not on Facebook.

Now some photos from the past few days:
I happened to have my big lens with me on a drive home from work when I saw a couple of deer. I see deer in this neighborhood often (more often in winter, though). I kind of consider them domestic, but I still enjoy seeing them. Not the sharpest photo, but I was stopped in the middle of the road and in a bit of a hurry.
Also, there was this bird. He was watching the deer too.
Are you bored of rainbow photos yet? I take them more to mark how often I have seen them this year compared to last. There have been so many, and when I stand out on my deck taking pictures, I am reminded of how lucky I am to have that view. I only wish you could see it in real life, because it's better than my pictures.
What was six goslings is now two, and I'm not sure if it's a different set or if four of them have already "gone to live at the farm." Right after I took this photo, the dad was hissing at me and started walking toward me. I know it's just to intimidate, but I did wonder what he would actually do to me if I didn't move along. Are geese dangerous to humans or is it all an act? I later imagined what would happen if I just jumped at him instead of being scared off by the hissing. Would he get startled and move away? Would he pull out a nunchuck?
(SIDENOTE: Firefox said I was spelling "nunchuck" wrong, so I Googled it and came across a video called Sweet Nunchuck Skills on YouTube. In it, the guy is doing all these twirly moves with a nunchuck, and while it's cool and skillful, I can't help but think it looks just like baton-twirling. Somehow changing out the baton for a nunchuck makes it manly and cool, I guess.)
