Instagrammin'. It's a word now.

I've been having a nice time trying to get a photo a day up on my instagram page.  I've been posting more than one for the most part, but it's nice to have a little goal for each day.

I've found that - rather frustratingly - the best way to get a nice, crisp image on there is to take a photo with my camera, upload it onto the laptop, email it to my iPod, take a screen shot of the image and then post it on Instagram.  It's laborious to say the least, but boy, do I love the outcome.
So the following pictures are a mixture of the past month.  Camera images, iPod images, etc.  They range from animals to games design to the environment.  It's been fun.
American Dwarf Toad.  One of many in the pool at the moment.

Another toad.  This one stayed here for a while, which was really nice.  This was one of three angles I was able to get without it moving at all.

The Five-Lined Skink.  Lovely little guy.  One of the first things I've flipped this year (found when I turned a big rock over).

Same one.

After a big rain storm, the garden next door looked like this.  It was pretty ridiculous.  The house that my in-laws live in is on a slight hill, so while the whole street is relatively flat, the garden here stays pretty dry (or at least above water) even when nearly all other houses look like this.

For the past few weeks I've been working over night.  On my way home one morning, I saw mist rising from this pond on the side of the road.  I tried to get as good a picture as possible; while I didn't catch the mist too well, I'm happy with the shot.

A new board game I'm designing.  It's set in space and involves guns.

Went fishing a couple of weeks ago.  This is all I caught.  I did not complain.

Mistletoe is pretty amazing.  It's all over the trees here, so I thought I'd take a picture of where it connects and shoe the people back home.

Long exposure from ages ago when it was snowing.  I do like a long exposure.

A lake at a friends' house.  We were fishing on it for a while and while my wifey got a bite, it came off.  That was the closest either of us got to catching anything.  I did get this amazing shot, though.  Not too shabby.

That's all for now.

I'm at work tomorrow and it's nearly 4 in the morning, so I'm going to have to call it a night.
