I call this the “popcorn tree” because these buds resemble popped corn; however, I’ll leave these for the birds and other critters to enjoy!

The last full moon of 2015 made her debut Saturday night, December 25th, and she was such the spectacular bella luna I have grown to adore over the years. Framed between the branches of a majestic tall tree, the last picture I took (before my battery totally died!), the universe (and my camera settings) just happened to convene at the perfect time, revealing the beautiful full moon nestled against the background of stars.
Taken from Planet Earth, with my beloved Canon EOS 70D camera, EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, with 1250 ISO, 1/3200 sec at 1.8.
P.S. Had this Earthling thought diligently before leaving town, I would have kept the 70-300 L lens on said camera, and brought my tripod (or at least monopod!). Alas, I had stars in my eyes!
Next Christmas full moon photography attempt: 2034 😀
