I was Attacked Yesterday
Hello everyone! The video I have chosen for this post is a 1932 song..."Night and Day", Fred Astaire.
Yes, you read accurately in the title of my post. I was attacked yesterday...by a gander (male goose), of all things. :)
See, I was taking a walk in a nature park, minding my own business, or at least I thought I was minding my own business. I was enjoying the beauty around me and taking photos, right? Well, there were a pair of geese, and the male thought that perhaps I got a little too close for his liking...and decided to nip at my pant leg. Fortunately I was wearing jeans, so no harm done. I obviously backed away and calmly told him that it was "O.K." He decided that he had taught me a lesson and backed off. Just before he attacked me, he attacked another, larger, goose! I am sharing two photos here and you will see that there are a pair of identical geese...one is in front of the other. The male was in the front, protecting his "lady". Then you will see a larger goose in the photo (with the orange beak). He attacked that bird first and then came for me. :) You can see in one of the photos that the goose with the orange beak was fluttering her wings and obviously not happy that he attacked her. I talked with a few guys that work at this nature park and they told me that this gander attacked them as well. LOL!
