Still life#4: the gatekeeper

Week #4
of our 2012 Project 52*
(*give or take a week here and there for vacations)

Taken using our 35 mm  f/2.0 lens + Opteka fisheye attachment. 
Our January theme is "still life."

We lovingly refer to this fella as our gatekeeper.  
He stands by our front door to ward off offending neighborhood rabbits.  
Is he effective?  Well, at least the rabbit only gets as far as the front lawn.

A gift from our deal friend, Miles, our gatekeeper has survived rain, hail, the hot summer months, and the occasional sniffing from our dog Friday. 

 Like the Beefeaters guarding the Tower or London, he neither blinks nor shirts from duty.

He does give off a scary vibe if you look closer, but deep inside he is a soft warmhearted, albeit, wild boar.

From now on, I think I'll call him Waldo.
Others have gnomes, we have Waldo.
Waldo, the wild boar. 
Have a fantastic weekend, folks.
