Pictures: The Pygmy Nuthatches no expectation of Privacy story.
Pictures: Couple shot of Juvenile Painted Redstart. These are not very good photos but they at least show me what kind of bird it is.
On this shot you can see just a hit of red, where as an adult would have a bright red belly.
Exercise: I didn’t get started till late today (rain) on my walk and it turned out that Jeanne was running late too, so we walk together. I end up with 4 miles.
Weather: Can you guess? Yes it is raining ☔ and it is coming in bucket-fulls just now. I’m not real fund of the ⚡ lighting and that is popping a lot right now too. It reminds me of times when I had pets and how they wanted to go hind under tables and such when they hear the thunder(I get the feeling they were pretty smart sometimes, LOL ).
It is such a interesting contrast to see how dry this area gets and than watch the monsoons of July and Aug come.
Photobucket: I am sad to say that literally 100s of my link in post will now be broken due to Photobucket change in policy 😦 😦 😦
Hot linking is now no longer allowed on free accounts or paid accounts (which I had all the time over the years I was a heavy user of their site) (But now ….. it will cost you $400.00 a year if you want to keep your images linked, a ridiculous amount) so I now have 100s of post with broken links and no way to fix them short of uploading all the photos to another site and re-linking them again. Lucky for me I always backup my images locally to a hard drive so no lost of images. Also I never upload the full size images to any online site …. one: for this reason and other reason too. Bottom line you cannot trust free online sites and to be honest I would not put a lot of trust in paid site either!!! Glad I knew that going in.
I have over 600 bird images and 100s of others images all with broken links on my blog now 😦 😦
Note: This happen to users that were paying them $60.00 a year on their paid accounts Too. They want $400.00 a year!
Photobucket you have the right to change your policy but replacing all the images with a link to your site ….. is free advertisement for you, I see this as just plain lowlife!!!
With Verizon buying Yahoo (and Flickr as part of Yahoo) I worry what will happen with Flickr images too.
Sorry folks I always make a rule to try to stay on the positive side of things, but this just pisses me off!
