At least the MacBook is fixed, I'm working on the iPad; it's a horse of a speckled color I will figure it out. Backing up my photos is the most important issue for me now, I don't want to lose any more. But it was a blessing and a curse as it enabled me to be rid of some of the fence riders; you know some of my favorites that had no further use except "feel good" for me. It will enable me to be more particular as what is a keeper.
Well that's my world as it was this morning, I have more Christmas shopping to finish, I better get with it. I don't know how Santa did it before Amazon came around.
Just off of Dutch Slough the levee has been breached filling a recently contoured 1800 acres into a wildlife preserve.
Any how this exercise was well worth it I cleared a ton of storage and the photo editors are working good now. Next is to take on Bridge and Photoshop the goal is to set it up for all of the data to be saved on an external drive.
Taking 300 keeper photographs translates into a considerable amount of time, luckily they take 5 minutes each. But after editing them the time comes to eliminate some, that may take 10 minutes per frame but it's a good problem to have.
During fire season they most likely head for a safe rookery a distance from their normal habitat. However the fog may be due only to not being able to see far enough to fly around.
Tomorrows a new day that looks like it will be clear. Another bit of rain is predicted arriving this Friday in a minimal amount. The important part is how much snow will fall on the Sierra Nevadas, the snow pack is what makes the difference in our water supply next Summer. We won't be out of this rough by a long shot,
Some fly close to the water surface at the same speed they fly far overhead, they only have two speeds stopped and fast. When they fly near the surface it's usually because they are executing a short flight of a few hundred yards. Generally when they are high overhead they are heading far down the river disappearing around one of the nearby bends. They remind me of Taxi Cabs on a busy downtown street continuously in motion without a concern in the world.
It's best to feed them under a nearby tree as it guards them from being attacked from overhead as well as being shielded from the side the tree is on. Watching one direction improves their chance of survival if a predator makes an attempt.
less they were there taking advantage of the seed I tossed out two days ago.
