Android "Birds of Australia" unpacker


For our recent trip to Australia, we purchased the Birds of Australia app; it was really handy during our travels when we were trying to identify birds (though there are some things about the UI which could be better).

As a tinkerer, I was interested in finding out how the app stores the bird data and what modification opportunities may exist.

Elkhorn Slough Boat Tour


On our way back from Monterey to San Francisco, we rode a pontoon boat on the Elkhorn Slough near Moss Landing (named for Mr. Moss, not the plant). This provided the trip's best opportunity to get close to seals, sea lions, and sea otters.

Some California Photos


Click through for a few pictures from California, mostly from around Mendocino. A few are from the Petaluma area and the Big Basin redwood forest. The long-tailed weasel (not a ferret!) is from half-moon bay.

Frankfurt Palmengarten


Here are a few of the things that caught my eye on our second visit to the Frankfurt Palmengarten (botanical garden).

The photos that were the most fun to take were the goslings; I was surprised that the parents (who were right nearby) didn't take much notice of me, even when I got within 2-3 feet of their babies! The little ones barely noticed me either. I took 200 images of them alone, so it was hard picking just 3 to show here.

Henry Doorly Zoo


We recently took a trip to the Omaha zoo. This was my first trip to the new butterfly exhibit with my 105mm macro lens, and I'm pleased with some of the shots I got. We also stopped in the Night World, Aquarium, and Jungle.
