Friday at the Flicks - Juvenile Collared Dove - Rainy Day

When the juvenile Collared Dove visited a few days ago I managed to shoot a couple of pieces of video:

A few shots from yesterday - torrential rain - fast moving clouds - Penny paddling - muddy sunset where the clouds were more shades of brown than reds and oranges.

Both videos have soundtracks made with music apps on the iPad.
SketchSynth 3D lite for the Dove
Loop Twister for the rain.

For those who are interested - one way of getting the sound output from the iPad to the PC is to use a gizmo like the Behringer U-Control UCA222 which takes the sound from the earphone socket of the iPad and sends it to a USB port. It is powered from the USB port so needs no extra batteries or power supplies. On the PC I use the program Audacity to record the sound and save as an mp3 file:


The photo shows the iPad running the app Loop Twister and the Behringer unit is the red box on the right hand side.


  1. Nice to see the juvenile dove and fun to see pretty Penny paddling in the pool (not sure where all those Ps came from!), just like a child :-) I hope you are drying out now, these are the times I am thankful we live on a hill!

  2. I am sure Penny would like to paddle at the seaside - pity she can't be trusted off a lead. Lawn free from surface water now but still squishy underfoot.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
