Found that if you accidentally leave location data on when you don't want to save it, you can't remove it using Google Photos. You can hide it from GP, but the geotag is still in the file.
On a Mac, though, Preview will let you view image metadata and delete just the GPS, so you don't need to mess with a full photo editor or ExifTool.
Final Landing Approach!
Another shot from the hike at the marsh preserve earlier this month.
The flowers, apparently Matilija Poppies, had huge, flat white petals with these large yellow centers. They looked like fried eggs.

This squirrel bounded along a wall carrying a walnut in its mouth as I walked down the sidewalk. It stopped and looked at me as if it had been caught in the act of walnut burglary. I had enough time to snap a couple of pictures with my phone *and* pull out my camera for a better shot before it scampered away.
Finally got a picture of one of the sparrows nesting in the parking structure!
Oh. Well. So much for that idea.
One of these days....
Western #Bluebirds spotted on a hike at the nearby marsh preserve over the weekend. This was before my camera battery ran out of power and I was stuck finishing out the hike with my phone. (I still can't believe I forgot to bring the spare.)
I did manage to get a photo of the #rabbit in focus, and I had a much clearer view of a second rabbit later in the same hike.
I imagine this #seagull reading the "No fishing" sign and being very disappointed.
An #egret wading in a marsh.
And another egret (I thought it was a crane at the time, but 3 people have IDed it as an egret) that I caught walking by the side of the road.
Funny thing is: I didn't use the Flickr-to-#iNaturalist importer for these. On Flickr I posted the full, composed shots. For iNat, I wanted to crop them to show the birds more clearly.
Confirmed that iNaturalist is totally fine with uploading older observations.
Tried out the Flickr importer. It's a bit rough for selecting, but it imports the description, time & location along with the photo, and you can import batches at a time.
I don't want to totally flood my profile, but I've got a lot of timestamped photos of animals & plants since I bought my first digital camera...
Two views of a 22-degree circular #halo around the sun that I saw on a walk this afternoon.
Halos are a lot more common than I used to think. Then I started actually looking for them. Even on a warm day like today, there can still be ice crystals higher in the atmosphere of the right size and shape to cause a display like this (or even more complicated ones).
