Warm and fuzzy moon

This morning at 2 a.m. it was still over 80 degrees outside, and, it being 2 a.m. and all, I found it hard to focus. Not just mentally. Literally. See the picture below if you doubt me.

What we have here is a fuzzy shot of the Summer Moon, taken on a warm and sleepless night here in south Florida. I only took the shot because I couldn’t get back to sleep after giving Eric his middle-night bottle (he’s sick. again. and needs his comfort food), for fear that tonight’s Summer Moon (9:35 p.m. EDT) would be clouded out or too low on the horizon for me to shoot while I’m still awake, etc. etc. So it’s an insurance shot, with strong hopes for a do-over, although the clouds outside my window right now make me glad I’ve got this one in the image bank, so to speak.

So, a warm and fuzzy summer moon to you all, and I’ll hope for a sharper image tonight.
