Owls (*Updated*)

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

A few shots of two different owls that I took last year while at the SF Zoo. Also, a small update to the second pic thanks to the San Francisco Zoo who provided me with a link to the story on the beautiful second owl, named Athena.

 

This is Athena — an Eurasian eagle owl who was smuggled into the USA disguised as a decorated easter egg. Read the full story here, thanks to SF Zoo for helping me put a name to this owl. What was funny — I had been taking photos of the other owl shown in the photo above this one, and Athena was actually hiding under a bush and I almost missed her — she’s actually a REALLY big owl, yet I almost missed her — glad I hadn’t.

Oh, and follow SF Zoo on Twitter — they are really hooked-in to social media.

Muir Woods & Mount Tamalpais Photos

Finally got a chance to get some of these shots up from my visit to Muir Woods and Mount Tamalpais north of San Francisco. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.

Digsby Client for Social Networks + IM

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

Trillian has a new competitor in town — Digsby is an IM/WebMail/Social client that allows you to use your Instant Messengers and major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn) all in one, which is a nice time save (or time add for some — it’s no longer out of site out of mind for me!). Check it out — skip all of the additional junk they try to get you to add and you’re good. That was the only negative for me, but after you decline during the installation, it’s fine.

http://www.digsby.com (tell me if their mascott reminds you of Homestar Runner…)

Oh, and if you’re on Twitter, feel free to follow me: http://www.twitter.com/darkviper; I’ve been updating there more often.

More Textures soon! Promise – I got a new batch I’m working on, along with some new animal photos.
