Moon North

A pastel blue and bluish-pink characterised this rising north moon as I drove north two nights ago.

Appropriately enough for the north, this moon is known as the “beaver moon” and is the last full moon of 2020.

I am happy to be moving into the last month of 2020, as well. I hope we learn from it, but I also want it to leave.

Happy week, everyone. 🙂

A Fox for All Seasons

A determined fox continues to hunt, despite the nasty weather.

John Blumenkamp Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Entitled A Fox for All Seasons, this photograph was taken on a freezing February afternoon in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Photographer John Blumenkamp watched the fox for hours, weathering the wind and sudden drops in temperature to take this stark image of a winter survivor.

Stay warm, everyone. Happy Friday. 🙂

Wasps

Frank Deschandol / Wildlife Photographer of the Year

This amazing photo was taken in France and shows two different types of wasp: the red-banded sand wasp (left) and the cuckoo wasp (right). The photographer was trying to capture the cuckoo wasp but got a bonus with both of them.

I’m not a fan of wasps, but this photo is beautiful and the work it took to get it pretty amazing.

Happy Wednesday. 🙂

Sometimes, life is like that.
