Even more of this famous moon!
The Landscape and Nature Forum is FULL of these special moon photos ... and I totally missed this moon (our German weather was quite quite against us this year).
I really like THESE vulture photos (the others did not speak so much to me, I was there, I saw them but did not really know what to say). There are some cool close-ups, too, and some nice colours, the "High Vulture" .... erm ... "High Voltage" pic is nice ... and that moon, of course, adds loads to the frames.
I think I like the last one best but I am not sure, there are so many good ones here.
neat captures, i especially enjoyed 4, 6, & 10... :thumbup:
Wow, you've got some really cool shots in that series! Glad you bumped it, or I might have missed it. 4, 7, 9 and 10 are my faves.
Very cool series. Nice work and good eye.
Very nice and funny photos.
Wow, is that moon for real? Awesome! I love #6 & 10. Great job!
Thanks everyone. I'm glad I bumped it. They are kinda so ugly you can't look away. Their flight is so absolutely beautiful though.
Alex06: Yep, the moon is real. I got up early to do this and remembered all the harvest moon shots here on the forum when I went out in the dark and it wasn't dark. I thought this would be the last of the harvest moon this year (unless something came in from Hawaii). I had a great time working to get it in the frame. It was cool, moon on one side, sunrise on the other and buzzards all around. I like the way the moon follows instead of fixes in the sky. It makes lining up shots interesting.
Note: October is a good month for tarantulas in the desert. Last year I got shots of a couple mating/fighting (to the death).
