  1. An interesting sequence, Wally, and nicely captured. My aversion to late nights is even greater than that for early mornings, so I admire your dedication.

    My very best wishes to you and Gini – – – – Richard


    • Thank you, Richard.

      Not happy with the results, but I will likely try again in the future. Lunacy is one of my best traits.


  2. Your shots of the moon are really nice, and especially appreciated since I didn’t see the eclipse itself. I’ve never noticed it before, but the dark spot at the uppermost left looks rather like a ginko leaf.

    Those Moonflowers are just as beautiful. How large are they? They look like a flower I’ve found in east Texas, but that one’s only an inch in diameter, and my sense is that these are larger. I looked at the USDA map, and your Moonflower does show up in Texas, but only in four counties. Of course we have other Ipomoea species, but this one’s a special delight.


    • Thank you!

      The moon photos were, to me, disappointing but decided to post them anyway.

      The Moonflowers, or Tropical White Morning-glory, average six to eight inches in diameter. I need to carry a ruler with me as I feel certain we’ve seen some larger.
