Mostly Full Moon, Cardinals, and a Monarch Butterfly – Foto Friday August 11th 2017

Welcome to another Foto Friday! Bit of a shameless plug before I get started – I have a small number of photos available for sale on Fine Art America (thanks to a request from a Facebook friend, who bought one of my moon shots in April 2016), and I’m slowly adding to my inventory over at Zazzle. If there’s a picture I’ve taken that you’d like to see on a particular product, feel free to shout out, and I’ll get it put together in short-ish order.

Now, on to the pictures for this week. These were all taken with my Nikon between August 4th and August 11th, 2017.

    The moon pictures are very dramatic. For a change, it’s not the detailed photograph of the moon that’s my favourite, but the on with the clouds in the bottom right-hand corner, which look as if they’re dripping.
