The Nature of Things.

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.

Cormorants

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.
