Full Buck Moon

Williams, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.

Thank you so much, Laura and CythiaSue.

It's a shot I was thinking about, Laura,
with the trees silhouetted against the moon.

No matter how long a zoom one has, there is
never enough.
