Grandma Barb’s This and That

Pheasant

I had four pheasant pictures that I edited in Picasa that I tried to upload here.  This is the only one I could upload.  I am going to link this to Wild Bird Wednesday and then I guess I will be taking a blog break because I don't have time to figure this all out.  If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.




Update - Here are the other 3 photos.  Don't even ask how they got uploaded.  The problem started when I did an update to Picasa last night.

Thanks for stopping.  See you when I have time to figure this out.

Pretty Barb. Sorry I can't help you I don't do Picasa.

This photo is pretty like a painting! Hope you figure out your photo issues!

Hmm.. I do use Picasa for filing & storing photos.. it makes a great catalog for the family to use. I haven't had any problems loading photos from there.

BUT - We've had all kinds of technical issues at home lately. First our internet was down for a couple of days earlier in the month. I went through all kinds of trouble with it, they said I needed a new modem, so on & so forth.. and finally it was learned from the company that it was on their end, not me. Yesterday I had no dial tone on our land line all day. Apparently both have had to do with our carrier, Centurylink. They had a major repair to do, I was told it was a big deal, and until the engineers got their special part from the coast, they were sorry to say our area would be under "Low Bandwidth."
Still today (this problem is getting to be a few weeks old now) I had internet problems when I needed to fetch some important documents from our online banking. It was slow to the point of not working.
I know you're somewhere in MN, too, so it's possible you could be affected by this too?
Sorry I'm no help .. I just blame the internet!

Blogger has been glitchy lately. I expect it will take a couple of days before they get things fixed. Great shot, I'll be looking forward to seeing the rest!

Karen Frost said...

Beautiful shot of that pheasant in the snow! I wish I could help you, Barb, but don't use Picasa either. :( Good luck, I know you'll figure it out! xx

I don't do Picasa either Barb' but can you not suitably resize with your favourite photo-editing programme, save, and then upload from your own computer files rather than going through Picasa? Your pheasant photo is beautiful. Shame you had all the hassles but we all have our share of them; it's not just you

Beautiful photo but unfortunately I don't know anything about Picasa...in the meantime I'm looking forward to your return!

Mari said...

I use Picassa but haven't had trouble lately. I had this happen about a year ago and had to start saving all my pictures to a hard drive and uploading from there. I did that for a few months and then for no reason, it started working again.
Hope you get it working again soon!

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

sorry you are having photo troubles. hope it will improve soon. fingers crossed. ( :

great shot. take care.

Yamada Miyako said...

Dearest Barb,
Oh, pheasant is Japanese national bird and I love the bird taked in the snow scene♬♬♬
I DO hope your trouble with picasa will be soon rectified.
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Pamela Gordon said...

That is a gorgeous photo Barb! I noticed the snow sparkling too. Very pretty. I just had an update this morning for Picasa and I think addressed that very issue. Have you checked for any new updates?

My Maine Blog said...

What a beautiful capture. I haven't seen a pheasant for years. When I lived in Massachusetts used to see them all the time but living in Maine they seem to be non-existent. I guess they don't like all the snow up here....hahaha. Beautiful, beautiful birds.

Beth said...

I love this picture. My husband and I used to drive in the country to look at the pheasant. They are so beautiful.

Dorothy Crutchfield said...

What a beautiful picture. I've never seen a pheasant before. Love this.

TexWisGirl said...

well, glad you were able to upload the first.

when you get some time, try to upload another photo to a new post - see if you get a message that you've run out of photo storage space - if so, you can purchase more thru google/picasa, you can choose to delete photos from older posts to free up space, etc. i've heard some folks say if photos are kept under a certain resolution/size, it doesn't impact space restrictions, but i'm not sure of that.

OMyGosh! Pheasants remind me of my Dad. He loved to hunt them and when ever I see one I always think of him. He was a great Daddy. Awh ~

Isn't that fun how just certain things remind of someone? Hey, how is your Mom doing?

Mama Zen said...

Pheasants are so beautiful!

TexWisGirl said...

yay! glad it fixed itself! fickle programs! :)

Wally Jones said...

Great images of a beautiful bird! We don't have them here in Florida but I enjoyed seeing them when we lived for a bit in New York.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

cool, glad things worked out. neat bird. i have never seen one in the wild. awesome!! ( :

Nell at njschout said...

Lovely photos, Barb!

debi said...

Terrific photos, those guys are fast you must have been waiting for them. ;) I used to use picasa exclusively but never had luck uploading directly from, always had to save somewhere else, hope you can figure it out. Share if you do.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I love those photos! Such a beautiful pheasant. I don't use Picasa, so I can't give you any advice on that front. Hope you figure it out!

Gary said...

That last shot is a beauty!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Carletta said...

Wonderful shots Barb!
I love the snowy scene of the first one. Reminds me of vintage greetings cards.
He must have been neat to see.
I know Blogger stores our photos on Picasa but I've never used it any other way.
I'm here late enough to see all the pics so I know you figured something out.

The Artful Diva said...

Beautiful bird - sorry you're having Picasa trouble. Don't you just hate it when that happens?!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Glad it worked- these are wonderful shots!

Absolutely gorgeous photography ~ very elegant ^_^

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Oh my, don't even get me started on updates and how they tend to mess things up. The pheasants are beautiful - I'm glad you were able to work it out.

Rose said...

Aren't they just beautiful! They just have to be one of the prettiest birds around.

Dave said...

They are a smart bird, great post

Dave said...

Glad the other 3 arrived in your post... stick with it girl

Amy Burzese said...

Those are great shots. I'm glad they all loaded for you. All computer/internet related things have glitches sometimes.

Small City Scenes said...

Wonderful shots of the Pheasant.
I used to have Picasa and loved it. Then I was told I had to purchase more space then I got a lap top and had so much trouble with Picasa I just deleted all of it. Had to save my pics though. Good luck. MB

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Pheasants are so pretty...you got some great shots!

Navigating Northward said...

Beautiful. Pheasants are very tricky to photograph, well done.

Jori said...

I love pheasants! The snow looks so sparkly!

Stewart M said...

Nice looking birds! Although I remember them from the UK as being utterly brainless!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne

Oh I'm glad you got them on! What a treat to see a pheasant! I love the sparkles on the snow too.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm more than a tad jealous that you got so many great photos of pheasants!

The Internet has been quite slow for the past few days, at lest in my area. I have no idea what's going on.

Marit Helene Gåsland said...

Wow so beautiful bird, beautiful colors.
Marit.

Marie said...

He's just beautiful! I'd love to see one in the wild. And that snow just glistens! Hope you work out the problem!

Buttons said...

Oh they are lovely I have no idea how to work any of that. Good luck and don't stay away to long you will get it. Happy Easter. B
