August Moon




Truthfully, I did not take these pictures THIS August. They were perhaps last August. But what better time to post them?

“…carefully guard yourselves so that you don’t look up into the skies and see the sun and moon and stars, all the constellations of the skies, and be seduced into worshiping and serving them. God set them out for everybody’s benefit…” everywhere.

well an August moon is still an August moon no matter what year it was taken :) You always get the most amazing pictures of the moon.

Great moon shots... Some of my August pictures from years past are just like this years.... August is August!!! BUT--here on the Cumberland Plateau in TN --we have had an extremely hot summer and it's been SO SO SO dry.... Our flowers are suffering this year --even though we are watering them.... I am SO ready for FALL.
Hugs,
Betsy

I am glad that these are from last year because I was sure the full moon had not happened yet this month. It messes with my head.

Hi Ginny, I came back to answer your question about the bee shot. I was practicing with a macro lens, one I haven't used in a while. I cheated a little. The bee was co-operative and stayed long enough for me to line him up carefully (after a few tries that is). I waited for one to land on this particular flower as there were so many bees, and sure enough this one turned up. The photo was a bit further away but I cropped close to the bee and this is the result.

By the way, your header shot is amazing! I only looked at your moon shots but focused on the header just now. Fantastic photo!
