Kepler Flyover

I sat on my back deck the other evening and watched the Moon rise in the still blue sky. The blue hour is always so cool and to have a nearly full Moon was great. I had my 100-300mm zoom on the camera because I really wanted to get some images of jets going past the Moon. I live right under the routes for Dulles airport. No jets, but I did get this flock of birds flying by. And luckily in this one shot I managed to get a bird (hiding the Kepler Crater if you want to zoom and check it out - I know super geek alert) crossing the Moon while the other caught the light of the setting Sun with their underwing plumage. Thanks for stopping by.

Wow! I know it's a sin to be envious, but that is one rockin' photo! Very, very well done!

I really appreciate the feedback. This was one that I did not know what I had until later. I saw the birds coming in and got things lined up but then started to shoot. Sometimes you get lucky.
