(2nd sighting and still no ID)
Great Blue Heron
The Blue Moon occurs when there are two full moons in a given calendar month. Tonight's moon was a Blue Moon. We were well positioned on the side of the impoundment and waited roughly 15 minutes for the bright moon to appear. It looked more orangey in person than it does in these landscape photos. The color is pretty accurate in the closeup, though. Nice night to be out. Now to wash off the bug spray!
