I haven’t been doing much photography the last few days as is evident by the lack of posts on this blog. I intend to correct that moving forward.
Yesterday afternoon Jeanne and I went on a photo drive. Visited a lot of our favorite places and there just wasn’t anything worthy of an image. Friday evening I was standing on the back patio and saw a large flock of pelicans flying over. I reasoned that they would be at the 16th Basin or at the River on Saturday. We found three pelicans floating in the middle of the channel. Much too far away for a photograph.
My friend Andreas has been photographing and following an owl at the Mud Lake Park North of Dubuque. She has hatched two owlets this year so we drove up to the Mud Lake area hoping to catch a glimpse of the owl and her offspring. She was nowhere to be found and the young ones must have been hunkered down in the nest. We watched for a long time but nothing.
We did find these Blue-Winged Teal swimming around. So we watched them for a half hour or more. Lots of fun watching any wildlife interacting with its environment. You can click on the images and make them larger for better viewing.
I have a project I’m going to try tomorrow. I have a 2011 Mac Book Pro that I bought new. It was blink fast speed when it was new and now is so slow I stopped using it.
I put a new battery in it and have had some other issues but it’s a great computer and I hate to get rid of it. So while doing a Google® search on how to speed up a Mac Book Pro the central suggestion was to replace the original hard drive with a SSD hard drive. There were several videos available to demonstrate the process so I’m going to try it tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
