Been quite awhile since I last posted any photos. The “why” is a long story and I have Yahoo to thank for it. It started when I got back from Kona on May first. Yahoo, decided not to support MAC’s Safari 5 anymore. My computer, while a top of the line Pro Mac was just old enough that I couldn’t upgrade my OS to get the new version of Safari. Since, Yahoo wasn’t supporting the version I had, all of my photos and the photos I viewed came up very low res and pixilated. This pretty much bummed me out. This caused me to quit looking at Flickr. Then my modem quit working. GCI replaced that and for some reason my WiFi quit.
SO! I special ordered a new MAC with the 27 inch HD monitor and a Apple Extreme WiFi base. My old computer had a 30 inch monitor, but, wasn’t HD. The HD is great! My son came up from Washington and with his help we got everything transferred, setup and running. I gave him the Mac Pro and the 30 inch monitor to take home with him. They were using laptops and iPads. As his wife said, “ the monitor is bigger then some of their TV’s”. I was running Snow Leopard OS on the Mac Pro. Now upgraded to Mac’s latest Yosemite OS. Took a little time to get used to the new Yosemite OS, but, it pretty cool. Also, upgraded to the latest version of Adobe Photoshop, as my CS5 wouldn’t load on the new computer.
Anyway, I hope to start posting again and get caught up on commenting on everyone’s posts. I took thousands of pictures while in Hawaii. Two of the things I wanted to get shots of, were the little Green Gold Dust Gecko and the Torch Ginger. That worked out very nicely. My son and myself are going back to Kona in October. So, that should be fun. Stace, is really good with animals and is good at spotting things most people miss.
Lately, I have been working with some moose calves and a Red Throated Loon and whatever else that comes along. There were two loons early this spring and I hoped they would nest, but the one moved on. I have been wanting to photograph the Red Throated Loons for many, many years. So, this is a first for me.
