Just across the street from my office (ok, and one more block) is Lake Union Park. Sitting right at the southern tip of Lake Union in Seattle, right where Boeing started up making seaplanes, is a park and a museum. And geese… lots and lots of geese.

The thing with these guys is that they are next to people all the time and their fear of people has basically gone away.

Which let me get up close to them with a camera. Some of them came so close to me that I could have reached out and grabbed them if I had wanted too.

Even excluding the geese, it’s always so nice to have nature as nearby as this; most of Seattle doesn’t have nearly this much access.
