A Collared Kingfisher (Todiramphus chloris) spotted at Pasir Ris Park, Singapore, on 19 March 2022. Often heard calling in the mangrove area, but harder to spot perched on a branch.
A common bird, often seen near waterways.

An Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris) spotted at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 17 March 2022. We were about to leave when it landed on the tree in front of us. Sometimes, good photo opportunities just fly in. 🙂

People discussing the #web3: "we need to make sure everyone feels included in this space of virtual exploitation and heavy monetisation of every aspect of our lives, this is the right thing to do"
It's #mushroom time again!
In the last weeks we had a few heavy storms, so quite a lot of trees in a local forest were destroyed. Which turned out to be a great opportunity for some new subjects for me!
One example was this birch, which had lots of beautiful tree mushrooms on it. The photo is a 1:1 magnification of the underside of one mushroom.
The other photo is the making of, which honestly isn't that special. 🙂
This fragile #moss grew between some larger rocks and it didn't really look like much of a subject to photograph.
But after getting the camera as low as possible to catch the light shining from behind and isolate two of the parts, I actually liked the outcome.
It's minimalistic, it's bright and it shows how small the moss was, because you get some sand as a visual reference on the ground.
Have a great day!
Happy to announce first disclosure of the year. On the menu :
* For starters: Multiple stored XSS
* Main course: Boolean-based and stacked query SQL injection
* Dessert: Code execution when the installation folder is available

Devs asked me to wait 2 months so they could patch and their users could update.
An interesting bee: a Confusing Sharptail (Coelioxys confusus) spotted at Pasir Ris Park on 5 March 2022. Was shooting something else when I saw it and took some shots. I later learned what it was: a 'cuckoo' bee that lays its eggs in the nest of leafcutter bees.

I made a browser extension that changes the word “billionaire” to “oligarch” and, well, it’s about as perfect as I was hoping.
Female Downy Woodpecker, Louisville, Kentucky, 2021-05-01
The two main ways I know to distinguish a Downy from a Hairy Woodpecker are:
1. Look for black spots on the outer white tail feathers. You can see these in the photo. Only Downy's have the spots. If spots are missing, it may be either species.
2. Look at the size of the bill. Imagine it rotating 180 degrees, and check if it would extend past the eye. If it would, then it's probably a Hairy Woodpecker.
Tech enthusiast and skeptic. Nice pictures brings me joy.

Could actually just be 3 gulls in a trenchcoat.
