In June the Moon is Growing Soon

This week has been busy, busy, busy. But there have been occasional evening moments when I could take in the wonderful depth of the dark blue sky-sea with the moon hoisting its billowing sail and sliding across. I tried to capture that depth of evening light the other day - still lingering twlight when the clock said it should be deep night. But I'd need a tripod and delayed timer to avoid the smear and blur that come with late evening pictures even when I steady the camera against a tree. This one came out the best, but it's not exactly crisp:


Tonight, though, I caught the moon near full without too much blur:


That's it for me tonight! Except - isn't this an intriguing flower (if it IS a flower?) . . .

Thanks, folks! I'll keep trying to capture an image of how the evening sky makes me feel. By the way, the followers list and follow button are on the right near the bottom of the page. I keep rearranging things . . .

Love the picture of the flowers. We always forget to take photos of the little things, tending to go for pictures of buildings and the like. This is really lovely.
