Here's a picture I took October 8th while on vacation.  Got more of other scenes and will share at some point.

On the visit to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, SC.

^ Looking at that on my smallish (by todays standards) phone, thinking what *is* that... then I saw the eye.
Great photo :up:

@hamradio: What is that - a mouse peeking out, or something? I can't make it out.

It's an alligator's eyes poking up out of some water covered with plant life.

@hamradio: Ahh. Of course. Fascinating how one's paradigms can mess with one's perceptions. I was convinced that was some kind of wet crabgrass, or something, though I did keep thinking that it looked rather like pond scum, but then my preconception was of a "park" environment, where (in my mind) you don't have crocs, so my brain obligingly filtered that out of what the eyes were seeing - but of course you do get crocs there. I could see it instantly after @Deozaan explained what it was. Blinkers off.
What a great shot!

Hand held Olympus SH-60, wouldn't focus once maximum eclipse reached, (not enough light).

Yes lovely :-*
The incomplete eclipse probably makes a better picture than the full one anyways :D

(We missed it here -- was just before moonrise, cloudy anyways.)

Thanks, second shot was 27 minutes short of 00:29, (maximum eclipse), but still within the time frame of the total eclipse, (23:51-01:07).

One day I might get another tripod to replace the one that broke years ago .... now when's the next eclipse ;D

You may have a point there. Not safe either. Looking at those images gave me an uneasy feeling, and then my left upper eyelid started to twitch. I think it was a lunar tic.

Not to worry, it's just a phase you're going through.

What a coincidence! That's exactly what the psychiatrist said to me at the hospital, after the doctors had patched me up after I had unwittingly drunkenly attempted to walk through a plate-glass mirrored window during my 40th birthday party.
It was a full moon that night too.
On reflection, I think he was right.
