Camera On The Run

I’m getting better at remembering to take my camera out with me. Tonight, I stuck it in my pocket for the garbage run (tomorrow morning is trash pick up)… And shining down beautifully upon us was the Full Moon. My first try was fuzzy:


Note the light above at 1 O’clock… is Jupiter.

The lights in among the trees, while they look like the Marfa lights, are actually the lights from our neighbor on the left, and across the street on the right.

So I tried again:


It’s not as clear as one shot of an Autumn moon from last year, but Q steadied me, and I waited until I got focus and snapped.

The last full moon of the winter season in March, is also known as the Lenten Moon, the Crow Moon to signify the crows that appear at the end of winter, and Sap Moon to mark the time for harvesting maple syrup from maple tree saps. It is also known as the Worm Moon because of the earthworms that come out at the end of winter and herald the coming of spring.*

I can definitely vouch for the Crows, but then again, they’re here all year round. I like the idea that it’s harvesting time for Maple Syrup. They have a harvesting place, if I’m not mistaken, at a park nearby. Will have to check that out this week. Worm moon, while I’d love to catch sight of some brother and sister worms, they’re not around at the moment. Of course, I’m quite aware that it is the Lenten Moon through our lovely Lady Calen who has been posting daily over at Impromptu Promptlings in a one word prompt challenge for this period of Lent.
