You got some great photos....Michelle


You were fortunate to see the lunar eclipse! It was cool and overcast here. I'm glad you had your second booster--we also had that in May as we had our first boosters a bit earlier than most people did. I still wear a mask in crowded places but I noticed we are a minority in that regard. I spent this week cleaning up the yard and planting vegetables and flowers. I now have the aches and pains to prove it--lol!


love your shots of the full eclipse of the moon. It was a long time I´ve seen one as we have been unlucky with weather.
Glad to see your nature shots.


Good to hear that normal (normal-ish?) rainfall is arriving and making places for the water birds! A newly remodeled bathroom sounds great.

Well done with the moon shots, Sallie. It's wonderful to be able to capture these natural events in this manner. And a new bathroom too! What a great week!


Hello Sallie,
Love your Little Blue Heron and the Egret. Beautiful birds. Sounds like you had the perfect spot for watching the eclipse. Your photos are awesome! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.

Your moon shots are great! And you always get to see such lovely birds. Now I want to see the bathroom.

So glad you got to watch the lunar eclipse. It was quite a show, and you photographed it beautifully. I know a lot of people missed it because of clouds.


Really amazing.

I'm contemplating my 3rd booster. stay safe! At least it is safe in the outdoors, where I like to be.

Iris Flavia

Oh, what a wonderful start into the day!!!
I hardly remember when we last had thunder and lightning!
Rain we had, I even made movies.
And this long weekend (Father´s Day) seems to be full of rain, too.
That moon is wonderful.
We have way too much light pollution for this view.
A statue, cute idea.
Your bathroom sounds great. We (hopefully also only half of us) will have fun with the kitchen sink - wish us (him) luck!


Fabulous shots of the eclipse. Love your pics of the blue heron and the egrets. I'm sure you are happy the bathroom is finished. Take care.

it's good you got your booster, we all here ended up getting triple vaxxed but we still got covid in the end, I wonder how much worse it would've been if he hadn't been vaccinated.

Yay for the booster shot and the bathroom project being finished. That sounds really wonderful. Such lovely photos of the birds. I am glad you had good weather for you to enjoy the beautiful eclipse. You got some amazing photos of it too. Very dramatic.

Wonderful photos! Congrats on that finished project that both of you are going to enjoy!

William Kendall

Wonderful moon shots.


Lovely photos all. Those moon shoots are fantastic. I am at 14 on the linky.

Have a good week



Sallie - incredible shots of the lunar eclipse! And I love the egret photos. We are on Grand Cayman right now, and I was thrilled to see a dozen or so small egrets in (what I guess is a temporary) puddle of water along the road. Maybe I will go back and take some pictures! Congrats to your hubby on the bathroom construction project! And thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

I love little blues and yours has such beautiful deep colors. We've had a few rain showers here but most everything soaked right in. And how wonderful to watch the eclipse. We stood out in the driveway a couple of times in the middle of the night. We were surprised no one else was outside! You got wonderful photos! WOW!

Bob Bushell

Beautiful images, the moon, Purple Heron and the Great Egret, you can beat them, thanks Sallie.

Great job shooting the Moon. We also have Egrets. They are also fun to see.


What booster jabs do you get in Florida? I was really ill for eight days after the Moderna, and a week ago the Astra Zeneca one knocked me out too. The latter gave me no trouble for the first two.


The eclipse photos are incredible and you didn't even have to go anywhere to get them. Must be exciting to be able to use your new bathroom knowing it is exactly the design you wanted.


Your eclipse photos are awesome, beautiful moon. Love the Little Blue and the Egret images. I am sure you will enjoy your new bathroom, it is great you have a talented hubby to do the work. Take care, enjoy your day and the new week ahead.


Wow... what fantastisc captures of the moon. We sleep at this time and had seen next day on the news in TV.

The bird is wonderful. You have a good eye, to see them on the pond of the neighbours.

Have a good week.

Happy MosaicMonday

Those moon shots are wonderful! Cloudy here, so I didn't even bother staying up late. Reno projects are great when they are completed. Have a good week!


Great moon Shots...Glad your project is all wrapped up and a success...my dogs do not like TS no matter what time of day they think that I control the weather...lol


great job with the eclipse photos - I can't take decent moon photos at all. Yes all the feathered gang will return to the water.
