Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

I added an electric fence to the top of the garden tower. It didn’t initially bother the raccoon. I also placed a copper cover over the compost tube connected to the electric fence. Movie recorded with an Arlo Pro security camera. That got the raccoon’s attention. Need to do the same for the other two garden towers.

Svartsengi geothermal power plant near the Blue Lagoon in Iceland. Image taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 23 mm f/1.4 lens. Between Geothermal and Hydroelectric power more electricity is generated than needed by the 340K residents of Iceland. The excess power is used by a couple of aluminum smelting plants, and more recently by bitcoin miners. I heard a report on the news that 600 computers specially configured with multiple video processors for bitcoin mining were stolen from a warehouse data center in Iceland. Need to follow where the power is being used…
