In this strange world of ours, a 2011 computer is an antique. Mine blew its graphics card, which Apple no longer manufactures. So I have a new computer. I spent the last two days upgrading software for my new operating system. This task is time-comsuming and often frustrating—and occasionally expensive.
Although the job is not quite finished, I am, at least, up and running. I photographed this Great Blue Heron, on 18 March 2017, at the Superior Drive Pond here in Northfield. This winter, a few herons lingered in Minnesota. Migrants have already been seen by others. This bird was my first for the year.
