Look who decided to stay a little longer! These beautiful American Goldfinches are still enjoying the Bird Buddy in my backyard. I guess they didn’t get the memo that it’s time to head north.

How Generative AI Creates Stunning Photos and Art

Generative AI is a hot topic right now. You can use it to swap out the background of a photo to make it more interesting, as I did here. πŸ‘†

You can also use tools like Adobe Firefly to create whimsical photos like this “Frog hiding under a toadstool.” πŸ‘‡

You can also “paint” pictures like this Japanese garden. πŸ‘‡

The question people are asking is, “Is it art?” 🎨 For now, I think people can tell the difference between AI and real photography. But as the models get better, it will become harder to distinguish.

Flag Day

We celebrate Flag Day πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ on June 14th because on that date in 1777, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes for the flag of the United States. It was the first official design of the American flag.
