**John Massey got a great photo of an Atlantis Fritillary Butterfly with its proboscis taking nectar from the head of a fully blooming Brown- eyed Susan plant. It made for a spectacular image of a very engaged fueling up of nectar!
Brian Stone didn’t go far to get sky photos on Friday night. He photographed from his backyard Saturday evening for the Moon and planets. The Moon was close to Jupiter and Saturn was close enough to get in the photo with them. The Moon was waxing gibbous 97% full. He did some full zoom plus photo enhancement photos of Jupiter and Saturn and the results were both crappy and wonderful at the same time as Brian phrased it, without proper astrophotography equipment. He found it was neat to be able to get the rings of Saturn and a couple of cloud belts on Jupiter even though it looks less than crisp. He added the enhanced zoom shot of Jupiter overlaid on the shot of Jupiter with its moons so it would look more realistic rather than the featureless white blob that Jupiter shows up as in a photo that is exposed long enough to show its moons beside it.
Brian also got some crepuscular rays coming from a cloudscape as the sun set.
