Spring is not yet

Well above freezing with dry sidewalks and a sunny-ish sky with some scudding cloud by the time I left work today, yes, but it was also snowing when I got up this morning.
It being not a proper snowfall unless there's a manically overfocused squirrel doing its best to suck peanuts out of the—fairly heavy guage steel—peanut feeder by sheer force of will, we may here observe the use of the ploofy tail as a drag device. (Possibly to keep the feeder from rotating in the roughly 15m/s wind.)
This is black and white processing practise; I can hope it's not appalling for tonal value on another screen. (Reading the PDML has started to make me very aware of that, and to faunch after much better monitors.)

FWIW, the value levels here are reasonable on my laptop screen. (And it's usually pretty atrocious for this, though often tilting it a bit will improve things.)

Glad to hear that!

I have a sneaking suspicion that what looks OK on a TN panel will look OK on anther TN panel and much *less* OK on high-quality calibrated monitors.
