Alas, The Full Moon

Can anyone guess the name of this full moon? I took this photo on May 31, 2007. Again, I used my 200mm lens with the addition of my tele converter. I also used my tripod and remote. The name of the full moon in May is the Flower Moon but being that May 31 was the second full moon in the month of May in my timezone it was actually a Blue Moon. Anything that was supposed to happen once in a Blue Moon … well, I hope whatever it was happened for you. Check back tomorrow for another shot of the full moon that I did not doctor in photoshop.

Helen, this is FABULOUS. I had no idea this full moon was the second one in May but I am very familiar with the meaning of a Blue Moon. I love how you have doctored this up in PS. Great, creative idea.

I normally keep up on this full moon stuff (because we're all affected by it!!) but my recent coming and going has gotten me a bit off track. Thank you so much for being the one to remind me of what's been happening in the heavens of late!!!
Helen: Thank you, Ginnie! This is a once in a "blue moon" shot! LOL
