This past weekend the full moon was closer to the Earth than it had been in 18 years. It lit up the whole property like dawn. It was truly amazing to see the moon rising through the trees. Even more amazing how the camera was able to pick up the landscape hours after sunset.
I wandered out to take pictures of the event. The moon was bright enough to illuminate the whole yard. As I sat in the lawn, snapping away with my camera, I heard the unmistakable "slap, slap, slap" of webbed feet. The ducks had come to see what I was up to.
I snapped one more shot of the moon illuminating the night sky, then went back to the house.
