📣 Useful Info 📣

The link below heads to a really good break down of Mastodon, the UI and more. It's a really good starting point for some of the non-obvious aspects of Mastodon.

It was put together by @noelle and we thank them very much for keeping it up to date for all this time.

My neighbor's chickens don't like to sleep in their coop, but in the pear and cornel trees in the backyard :D

Call your doctor if you experience double wigeon.

There were SO MANY wigeons at the pond that day. A lot of the males were making this whistling sound like a squeaky toy and making a big display of flapping their wings. Duck waving, I suppose you could call it.

The males' heads also had this green iridescence, but I couldn't capture it.

I feel a little bad for not posting any photos for so long, but the here in is very gray. Neither sunshine nor snow and I do have a very hard time taking photos in such conditions 😅

On the other hand: If you have tips on what to shoot in overcast weather, enlighten me, please ^^

Photo taken for topic "use of grain" given on "BW Photo Collective" telegram group (join us, let's discuss photography and experiment together!)
I used highest ISO and added sharpness for more grain effect.

I miss analog film grain I must say.

Black Phoebes are one of those birds that I never noticed until a couple of years ago, but now I see them *all the time*. I'm fairly certain they've been here all along and I just wasn't paying enough attention to birds before.

Went for a walk at Coney Island, Singapore, on 1 March 2021. Due to the current dry weather, there were a lot of brown patches. I did manage to see three individual Common Tigers (Danaus genutia) during the walk. This one is a female.
