As some of you may know, the Her Interactive office is in a building located on a wildlife refuge of sorts. Behind our building is a slough and further away is dense vegetation for all sorts of critters to hang out in.
The critter that rules over all is the Canadian Geese. These guys are quite the characters! Once they have their goslings in spring, stay away! They can be quite protective and fierce; they will hiss if you come too close walking along the path around the building complex, and if you try to be brave and pass them, there is a chance they will chase you. And you do not want to be chase by this huge bird!
Our IT Network Ninja was driving down the street, and they commanded every one's attention as their goslings followed suit as they strolled down the busy street, heading towards the south-bound freeway: (click the images for a larger view)
The baby goslings are really cute and fluffy, and this was as close as I could get before papa goose became leery of my presence:
"Hey guys! Lunch is on me!" Wait, what?! Sometimes people like to throw stuff at them, like tomatoes... 'cause that seems like an appropriate thing to throw... I guess...
