Almost forgot to post my image for today: a headshot of my lovely Alfred:

Nice! At the beach yesterday, there was a "people friendly" Snowy Egret (I believe Alfred is a Heron, I think they're in the same family), kind of sidled up close to us in our tidal pool, we'd look, it would stop, we'd look away, it would creep closer, hahaha, it was like a ghost in a Super Mario game :D

I know, I LOVE lights/lighting.

(We have some fun colored LED lighting on the deck, hahaha, maybe we can become a new light show destination :ROFLMAO: )

This is a composite, first of the sky so I could capture all of its color and light and then of the moon. I then combined both shots into one. Star trails are likely shooting stars as it was probably a 5 or 6 second exposure on the sky.

Yes, Alfred is a Great Blue Heron. He's been living on the lake here for a while, and I first "met" him last summer and promptly fell in love! :D. He's become rather well-known on MR and also on Nikon Cafe, where I also share photos, as I've spent a fair amount of time capturing him over the past year. We also have other herons and the occasional cormorant and of course the good old garden-variety Canada goose. I am surprised that Alfred hung around here all winter but he seems to be fine with our cold weather.

I also adore Egrets, too, and Roseate Spoonbills and Woodstorks and....well, just about all the beautiful water birds that can be seen on a regular basis all year around down in Florida. That state is Mecca for bird lovers and bird photographers!
