A visit from the “Supermoon”

Do you ever get in those nature-y moods?  Apparently that was me this weekend.  I think it all started with the amazing “supermoon” last night.  According to scientists, over the weekend the moon was the closest to Earth (and therefore brightest) that it will be all year.  Although my camera is obviously not designed to take moon shots (or if it is I obviously do not know how to use that function), but I gave it my best attempt.  My attempt as a nature photographer continued today, and I couldn’t resist taking a few flower shots as the sun was setting.

The “supermoon” lights up the sky at 11:30PM.
