The Garden Path Glows……..

“The garden is very still,
It is dazed with moonlight,
Contented with perfume,
Dreaming the opium dreams of its folded poppies.
Firefly lights open and vanish
High as the tip buds of the golden glow
Low as the sweet alyssum flowers at my feet.
Moon-shimmer on leaves and trellises…”

        Tonight is the night for the full moon! I hope it is clear. I loved the silver tint of your photo! Do you use your macro lens? I do so mine always turn out yellowish. My Uncle said they looked like cheese curds. LOL He’s from Wisconsin hence the Cheese theme always on his mind! Your photo looked sparkly. How did you achieve that affect if you don’t mind me asking?

          Ha…no I have an 80-300mm lens. It seems barely adequate.I can’t spring for a new telephoto lens. I have been seeing this nest of eaglets near the Columbia R. Last year, this time I tried to capture them with this lens. Again, barely capable. Someday. Good luck tonight!!! Liked your picture incorporated into that one post. Very nice. Enjoy the afternoon.

            I’m never quick enough to capture birds. I’ve give up. They almost have to be decoys that way I can steady myself! Ha. Thank you so much for the compliment. I always enjoy your photos as well! You enjoy your afternoon too! 😀
