Moon: Yes, Venus: Yes, Bat: No!

Another beautiful night sky that I just could not resist photographing. Yesterday evening (Sunday) there was not a cloud or a bat to be seen when these photos were taken, at around 10.30 pm.

  4. I love these photos. Like the way that you capture the trees as well as the moon. It has been a real fingernail of a moon hasn't it?

  6. Gorgeous night shots! But I do think you have to be VERY lucky to catch a bat in a photograph!

  7. Hi Lesley, lovely photos! We watched the moon for a while on Sunday evening as well, she was beautiful, wasn't she? It was unusual to see the glow across the entire surface with only a sliver reflecting the sun.......

  8. Thanks for commenting everyone - yes, capturing a bat or bats probably a little too ambitious. The planet is definitely Venus, though! Lesley x

  9. Lovely photos Lesley! My sister gave me a wonderfully illustrated "Eco-logical" calendar for Christmas, and if I am reading it right, there will be Mars followed by Saturn near the moon over the next few days??! Helz x
