I tried to capture a shot, but I don't have the technical knowledge and my camera was definitely not seeing what I was seeing... a big bright moon with clearly defined craters. Oh well, gave it a shot! (pun fully intended).
So what exactly is a blue moon? Apparently there is more than one definition. To purists - the third full moon in a season that has four full moons - which only happens once every 2.7 years. To the rest of the world - the second full moon in a calendar month - which happens much more frequently. This one was the real deal. Maybe by the next time the real thing rolls around, I'll know how to shoot it!
I had a few people wondering, after my Simple Moment post, what a katydid sounds like. And honestly, there are so many different sounds a katydid can make, depending on where you are located and the particular variety of bug. But I was able to source a sound wave that sounds EXACTLY like the irritating little bugger outside my bedroom window: Link to sound wave. If you listen, you can hear the crickets in the background and how the sound of the katydid really overpowers the background noises. That is pretty much what I hear every night now when I go to bed!
My babies both leave for college on Saturday. I'm kind of excited and kind of freaking out. My first real taste of empty nest is a mere four days away. Where DID the time go???
And no, I wasn't the photographer for this shot of the two of them outside our temporary home at the shore.
The beautiful shots I managed to capture made the time I did spend there very worthwhile! :)
