Both photos today are brand spanking new and -- as I've said here before about new photos -- I should probably let them "cool" a bit before posting. But I'm going with the heat of the moment and putting them up anyway. Titles and very brief comments immediately follow each.

"The Parakeet's Lament" looks vaguely like a parakeet beak and head in the lower left, therefore its title. I have a couple more photos from the same batch this one was in that are "abstract," too. Even when I get a good clear shot I'm finding these days that my desire is to manipulate the image. Fortunately, my basic editing program saves all originals, too, if I change my mind.

I don't think "All Hail the Gibbous Moon!" is any great shakes as a photo. I actually like it better in it's original, tall narrow version. However, there are big obstructions (dark intrusive leaves, etc.) that make cropping necessary. And this was the best I could come up with ultimately. I only share it because it's the clearest shot yet I've gotten of the moon, day or night. And even more so because the gibbous moon has particular meaning to me. I'm always a bit of a lunatic -- pun definitely intended -- during the waxing gibbous phase, sometimes worse then others. And this one that just ended yesterday with the full moon was a howlingly difficult one. So I'm giving it due respect here. :-)
