Playing around with iMovie

(Video fixed--uploaded the wrong file the first time.)

Hemaris thysbe, or the Clearwing Hummingbird moth, likes hanging out at the butterfly bush in our yard. I tried out iMovie for the first time with footage from outside today.

Playing in the background is "Strange Days," sung by Beoga on their cd, The Incident, as otherwise, the not-so-sonorous sounds of the neighbor's weedwacker would have been apparent.

You are so cool! I need to learn how to do this. I just bought a new laptop, but it's not a Mac. So I'm going to need some movie software.

We're gonna make millions I tell ya!

LB--It's good to have a plan. Let's do it!

Barb--Come home! Enough gadding about, already!

And to my neighbor in the shadow of a mountain, howdy! We're about 45 minutes from Mt. Wachusett, but have made it to the area for a couple of field trips--I'll check out your group. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
