Evening Moon

It's been a while since I've posted photographs of my old friend, the Moon: after all, cloudy spring days in the mountains often obscure the view, particularly during those early moonrises, as it waxes. But, as we head toward the solstice, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to view it a couple of days in a row, sparrows chirping, mallards flying in clean geometric formations, and deliciously scented lilacs in bloom.
