Went out to photograph buffalo / bison today. Very overcast with light snow. After I had my fill of buffalo, on the way out of the park saw these telephone poles. Took some shots while driving. Should have stopped.
I'll have another serious conversation with myself later about slowing the heck down when I see something interesting and not half assing it.

Northern Cardinal

I took this photo in September 2022. I like the colors of her feathers.

Life goes on at the feeder:

This nice couple dropped by for dinner on 21 December, which is the winter solstice. I would have liked to get closer, but they would have promptly departed had I tried. Be that as it may (I just wanted to use that in a sentence馃槑), I took this photo from inside my patio through the glass door. The birds look almost like paintings, don't they.

Beach Birds

Here is a sanderling and ruddy turnstone hunting at Holly Beach, Louisiana.

鈥淚 caught a glimpse of happiness, and saw it was a bird on a branch, fixing to take wing.鈥 - Richard Peck

Meanwhile, back at the feeder:

This is a female cardinal and a black-capped chickadee. Chickadees don't hang around long at the feeder and it was gone a second later. I took this photo from inside my house, it's zoomed in a bit too much.

Gulf of Mexico

The ocean seems to go on forever until it fades in the distance. There is a lone brown pelican skimming the water far away.

鈥淵ou will love the ocean. It makes you feel small, but not in a bad way. Small because you realize you鈥檙e part of something bigger.鈥 - Lauren Myracle

Something else I don't miss, making engineering drawings on a drafting board using pencil, a T-square, and triangles. I did these in high school. I used to use a slide rule too. Most of you probably don't even know what those items are. CADD is much better, and you don't end up with pencil dust and ink stains all over your clothes. #MastoArt #Art #photography #photo #CADD #drawing #engineering #drafting

Royal Terns

These terns were all facing out to sea, lined up at Holly Beach, Louisiana, on the Gulf of Mexico.

"A sleek seabird of warm saltwater coasts, the Royal Tern lives up to its regal name with a tangerine-colored bill and ragged, ink-black crest against crisp white plumage. They are social birds, gathering between fishing expeditions on undisturbed beaches and nesting in dense, boisterous colonies." - allaboutbirds.com

I took this shot of Hollow Rock on Grand Portage and Lake Superior a decade ago.

Despite this spot being only about 45 minutes of my house, I seldom get there. Every year, I think that I should go photograph it in December when the sun comes through the hole, but then I end up doing other locations for the good sunrises.

The water was low a decade ago! You can't get this close now that water levels are near normal.

Wendelstein 7-X broke yesterday its own record with the 100 s discharge duration and ca. 400 MJ total energy injected into plasma.

This infrared image shows almost no thermal loads to the first wall, i.e. plasma is well insulated from the surroundings, which is essential for a future reactor. We call such state of plasma - detachment. It allows for longer operation of the reactor.

With 100 s plasma duration this is probably a world record for the duration of the detachment. (C) IPP

We plan to reach 200 seconds by the end of this campaign with 1 GJ injected into the plasma.
