The full moon this month is on Thursday. It’s a Sturgeon moon. The name came from the Algonquin tribe. The sturgeon were more easily caught during August. We are closer than normal,so It will be a so called “Supermoon”.
I went out on Sunday hoping to be able to go out on either Monday,Tuesday or Wednesday as well, but the fog had other ideas! I got a few this month.

I read that it is the last super moon this year. Nice to see your eagle friends again.
this is the fourth full moon in a row that is a “Super”!
thank you Anne!
Beautiful photo, super moon or not!
Perfect picture. Love the moon.
Thank you Peggy! Romeo posed perfectly for me!
Romeo – how cute. Perfect name.
he’s a real sweetheart!
Beautiful – simply beautiful!
thank you Annette,Romeo is a true beauty!
Wow. A fantastic shot!
Thank you Liz,I wait a long time to get these shots.
I’ll bet! Perfect does not come easy.
The eagle in the beautiful header seems to say: “I’m lookin’ at you, kid.” ;-)
that sounds like the line from Casablanca!
Romeo looks down all the time while we visit.
Always good to hear from you Martha!
I never seem to get your posts Martha?
I take it that’s Romeo posing! He is so gorgeous! How long do the eagles live?
You are correct Noelle! You are becoming familiar with my feathered friend!
About 20 to 25 years but longer in captivity.
A splendid photograph, Wayne! I don’t think we’ll be seeing the moon tonight, unless this storm passes and the skies clear… feels fresh though!
enjoying the thunder I assume?
Seems to have rumbled off, and blue skies are reappearing – maybe you’ll get some more moonshots this evening after all?!
nope,…….moon rises at 8:45 pm and sunsets at 8:48 pm!
A beautiful picture, Wayne. Fog can be a menace.
thank you and yes!
Truly an iconic shot of the eagle in front of the full moon, Wayne!
actually, my signature shot!
Thanks for stopping in Terri!
No doubt, Wayne 🤎
Your pictures are always just so beautiful and inspiring. Well done.
thank you MB,always good to hear from you!
What a great shot Wayne of this regal eagle in front of the moon. You were lucky to get this shot on Sunday since Mother Nature was such a killjoy with her fog.
Very nice, very nice indeed! :D
Beautiful image but I am not sure I am very impressed with the moon’s name – not as dramatic as Hunter Moon, for example.
thank you Emma and I agree! What should we call it?
I was thinking about you, hoping you would get a shot of the Supermoon. Wow!
thanks for the thoughts Jennie. Realistically I get about 4 times a year to do this. Normally it’s either overcast or just plain bad weather!
I haven’t mentioned this yet but you may of as well know Jennie. For the last 20 years I’f been watchful during each full moon to see If the moon rises further south than normal?
Why?……..because Tofino faces northward. I’ve always wanted to get a shot of Tofino with the moon over it!
Normally one would need to look north and because of that angle you wouldn’t be able to see Tofino due to all the trees.
So this last moon the moon did come up further south and I finally got a shot of Tofino with the moon over it and bathed in golden light! I do like the shot but would have liked the moon to be lower. It’s too high in the sky for me. I have a idea how I can get that shot on my next try!
Maybe next month the moon will be rising south again and I can try that idea out!
It will be my next posting.
I understand what you mean. I think you got a great shot, but you’re the expert. Hey, you have a full moon every month. 🙂 Good luck trying it out next month.
each month all I can do is try!
How did you get him to stand still for that shot, most photographers can’t get children to sit that long…lol
I don’t,I observe where his favourite perching spots are and wait for him. I’ve known him now for 15 years. We know each other really well!
