More Meadowhawks

Temperatures edged up to 70 last week and the Autumn Meadowhawks were out in force.

Yesterday, after several chilly days with no sign of these little red beasts, it got into the high 60s. One or two were spotted again.

Speaking of red beasts, here’s this morning’s lunar eclipse. A car alarm outside the apartment woke me at 2:50 a.m., so when the alarm I’d set for 3:30 went ring-a-ding, I was damn grumpy. The cloud cover was intense outside, so I said “argh” and went back to sleep. Dreaming of going outside to photograph the eclipse, I woke again at 4:11, almost a dozen minutes after peak. I peeked outside and saw the sky was completely clear except for the blood-beaver-harvest moon! So I hustled outside and took this at 4:20.
