Stick out your tongue and say 'wow'
In one of those freaky synchronistic moments of the web – and life – two bloggers I like to read have posted about encountering blue-tongued lizards – and shared photos of them – within nearly a week of each other. Weird coincidence? Or is it just spring?
But the coincidences pile up. Both live in New South Wales – probably within cooee of each other, or not: Mike, who writes Peasants are Revolting, lives in the Blue Mountains and Stephen, who writes Emunctory, lives in Sydney. Both are dads who write about their kids and families regularly (a reason I enjoy reading their blogs), both are IT/web guys, have similar interests in social and political concerns, and take great photos of wildlife (all also reasons why I like their blogs)!
Weird. But fun. It's one of the things I like about the web and the blogosphere: I wouldn't have come upon such a coincidence without it, and I would never have 'met' either of these guys without blogging.
I've shared Stephen's photo from his flickr site above. You can find Mike's here. Their shots sure beat my lame attempt from Wilsons Prom earlier this year.
