Sky Watch Friday





I could hardly wait for this day to roll around...I know these photos are not picture perfect, but I still was really pleased with what I captured. If you want to join the fun, check in at the Sky Watch Blog. If you don't want to join, I highly recommend going and visiting some of the links posted.

This will be posted a little bit early...I am hoping to be here to check and make sure that the photos enlarge. Last week, I did not realize till half way through that one of my photos would not enlarge. After Sky Watch is over with, I will post some more from Insect Alley.
