Daniel is a Mountain Lion who lives at the animal rescue facility, Animal Ark, a little north of Reno, NV USA <http://animalark.org/>. "At noon on October 17, 2011, Animal Ark received a call about an orphaned 3½ month-old mountain lion kitten. Could Animal Ark take him? That very morning, we had said farewell to a much loved older cat, Tonka, and thus, Tonka’s enclosure stood empty. With space available, our new resident arrived the following afternoon. Daniel is the lone survivor of his family. His siblings had perished a few weeks earlier and his mother had been killed the day he was found. Mountain lions are very elusive, so normally nobody would have known that the mother had a kitten in tow. However, since this mountain lion family was being monitored by an UNR PhD candidate conducting a long-term study on mountain lion ecology, it was possible to locate the kitten, which ultimately saved his life. Mountain lions hold the world record for the most common names (Guinness Book of World Records, 2004). They are amazing jumpers and can jump 20 ft across in a single bound without a running start, and up to 15 ft vertically."

Dawn at Pine Butte Swamp Preserve, Montana, early last month. This is an area where grizzly bears still wander down out of the Rocky Mountain Front onto the High Plains of Montana.

+Bob Tregilus Thanks for the link. I've just watched it. I didn't know it exists; thanks for sharing this knowledge.

Guess I forgot to share this on Google+. So in case you missed it, it's a photo of progress on the Tesla Motors' EV battery Gigafactory that's under construction a few miles east of Reno, NV. I shot it last Tuesday (01/13/2015).

A nearly full moon over Reno, Nevada. This is a low-dynamic-range (LDR) "image fusion" of five shots. Processed on the command line with Enfuse and touched up in GIMP. A bit noisy, but not too bad. I'll keep trying!

Oh Bob, how come you didn't know Australia is hot? I do love your photo it is well composed and shot. I am in New Zealand where we don't get much snow except in the mountains of the central North Island and in the Southern Alps.

Very cool video. Thanks! You should also thank the executive director of the Governor's Office of Economic Development, Steve Hill. I believe he was the key person to understand how important the Gigafactory will be going forward, not just for EVs, but also for static energy storage applications. My past experience with EDAWN was they were clueless about the energy / EV space, pretty much dismissing it as irrelevant in my opinion.

Sunset this evening at Virginia Lake in Reno, NV (USA). I finally got the latest Darkroom (a free software analog to Adobe's Lightroom) installed which supports RAW images from a number of new cameras including my new Sony a6000.

Yup, thanks. This photo was simply my playing around with different functions in Darktable now that I have the latest version that can edit RAW from my new Sony a6000. I generally don't do much editing to any of my photos. I'm not a big fan of the HDR over-saturated contrastey stuff you see a lot of these days. But also, for some reason Google+, even without the 'enhance' function turned on really changed the look of this photo. It looks less' overdone' on Facebook or my monitor. :/

Sort of. Reno is ~3-4 hours east of Sacramento and San Francisco, California.

Story
Tagline
Plug In America Show producer/host. Electric vehicle EV-angelist, vehicle-2-grid (V2G) geek, energy democratizer, and renewable energy feed-in tariff wonk.
Introduction

I produce/host the Plug In America Show: http://www.pluginamerica.org/ev-media/podcasts.

Bob’s interests varies widely–as well as wildly–and include nearly everything with the exception of sports (drag- and air-racing are OK though), screeching babies (they’re like fingernails on a blackboard), television (the plug in drug), mindless commercial pop culture [fill in the blank] (it kills brain cells faster than moonshine) and Brussels sprouts (they look tasty, but aren’t).

Mostly Bob is an amateur (sometimes professional) policy wonk and troublemaker (aka: community organizer) in the areas of renewable energy, electric drive transportation, civil liberties, GNU/Linux and economic justice.

In 2011, he got a bill introduced into the Nevada State Legislature to adopt a renewable energy feed-in tariff. Sadly, the bill (what was left of it after the lawmakers got through with it) was vetoed by the governor.

When Bob isn’t podcasting you can find him on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, at Feed-in Tariffs for Nevada (FIT4NV), the Electric Auto Association of Northern Nevada (EAANN), the Alliance for Renewable Energy (ARE), about.me, or tinkering in his machine shop, or creating real wealth (unlike the societal-leeches that infest Wall Street) by growing food in his garden.

Bob also likes to play with Schrödinger “Ding” the super-symmetric, super-positioned, quantum string theory kitty. (Well, Ding plays when he isn’t working on his Grand Unified Theory equations.)
