Twilight

We walked at Twilight
the first night after New Moon.

The Moon's penumbra, her partial shadow, was visible to the unaided eye.

Good Morning Pat,
I am having coffee at Corner this morning too!
I use a Nikon D50 camera. I have three lens, so I can go from 18-500x. I would like to get a couple more, a macro and a wide angle. I need to get a filter for the telephoto so my birds in the sky, like Northern Harrier, shots are crisper! That I think I will get this weekend!!!
Some shots like the Tiger Swallowtail I am as close as I can be, she did not mind. She filled the viewfinder!
I am glad you enjoy the essays.
Have a glorious day,
Sherry

Dear Sprite,
As you know I am a inbetween person.
The veil is thin and we can see all the way home.
