Moon-set #2

So I caught the moon setting early this morning. It sure was lovely. Did you know that a full moon in January is called a Wolf Moon? Me neither. You're welcome! :)

The benefit of having a window in your shower is catching a glimpse of this beauty. Unfortunately I was not quick enough to get a better shot of it before it started to hit the horizon.

The benefit of having friends text you to ask you if you've seen the moon rising I'm running out the door with the camera before it gets too high in the sky!

It never gets old either rising or setting!

I am not a good sleeper. I never have been. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. If I wake up at 2am, I usually go to the couch, turn on the tv very low and usually can go back to sleep. Usually. One morning last month I was rewarded for my lack of sleep and saw this at 330am. It was awesome.

I have never seen such an orange moon, much less at 330am! (And I almost missed it!) A few days later, I (thankfully) had slept through the night and happened to look out the window while getting my coffee and saw this...

Again, the orange moon, but thankfully at 630am. This time just about full also. The funny thing would have been to see me running around in the dark, getting my camera, swapping lenses and trying to figure my settings, all in about 2-3 minutes! Some things are not meant to see! :)

Popcorn and Cotton Candy

Looking west and north gave us 2 different cloud sunsets. Kinda
weird, but beautiful nonetheless.

What a beautifully, un-humid (spring-like) day! It makes spending all day cleaning yesterday so worth it! I spent the morning hanging out with my butterfly bushes in the cool morning air. I probably would have just ignored all the moths...because they're always there...but the creme de la creme showed up...the Monarch! I've been waiting for him/her to show up for a while now and it picked a beautiful day to show. I'm not even sure I can pick a favorite. There were many more...maybe I'll load more tomorrow while all the boys are hanging out together. Being the only girl with 6 guys in the house for the next few days gives me the right to hide out! :)

These 2 are really cool (probably my favorite)
 because the moon is in the background.
I focused on the moon in the bottom picture,
which blurs the butterfly in the foreground.

The little finches are coming to enjoy the the
sunflowers that are finally going to seed.

Still working on a decent hummingbird picture.
These were shot thru the patio screen door.

Sunset the other night.
