Taylor Swift used facial recognition software to detect stalkers at LA concert.

The Rose Bowl venue didn’t inform concert-goers that their image might be collected at a special kiosk showing Taylor Swift rehearsal clips.

Driving through town today, stopped at a traffic light and a FREAKING HUGE HARRIER HAWK swooped down and landed on top of a building. I was on my way to the nature reserve to meet friends for walking so I had my good camera on me :D

Podcast question: if you listen to a podcast on Soundcloud on your phone, do you use your internet connection or is there a way to listen offline?

Never thought about this before, but the #Firefox "Reader View" is a decent way to bypass some adblock detectors.

Lush video and lucid music from a small Scottish group I sort of know, just released. Imagine a sort of cheerful and melancholy, celtic soundscape...

Oh no, I just discovered a cassette label from the west coast and I'm really liking what I hear. This could be expensive. (Thanks @douginamug !)

This is tagged "experimental" but definitely at the approachable, off-kilter pop end of that.

Whiskered terns. I've never really paid attention to them before, or perhaps not seen them properly in action, but they're very graceful birbs.

The Smaller Wood Nymph (Ideopsis gaura) spotted at Fraser's Hill, Malaysia, on 20 Nov 2018.

This butterfly glides through the forest canopy, sometimes dropping down to eye level. It's left alone by birds because it has a distasteful taste.

After 'torturing' me for a few days, this one finally decided to land and I wasted no time in getting shots of it.
