Great picture. I've commented on it twice and been signed out. I see the moon alright, but I think your days of giving me static on some of my bird tags have come to an end.

heyyyy, this is an astronomical marvel - It may have been the first visible view of the moon after the New Moon! Highly deserving of the Moon tag! Plus it helps get the view count up. How many times did you click on it, LOL ? And speaking of view counts, Ol' Bug Eyes has sure gained his share!

Dang! I just realized that by responding I'm giving you another view. I was gonna say I didn't click on it much cause I knew where the moon was from the other photo. And yes it seems a few people have been bitten by my bug, she is quite infectious.

LOL, I know I'd sure give anyone else who posted this a hard time about the 'moon' tag! Even looking at the photo page and knowing where the moon was, I can hardly see it. And why the 'Dang' ? You own me a couple! by convincing you to enter the photo, it's upped the view count 50% in a day! (It was after I entered my evening shot through the waterfall that you'd M'd that the views went from M to MD in barely a month. Might have been coincidence, though.)

But if you really want to groan at absurd view counts: BBKK's ND = 3,519 in <10 days!

Click. BBKK got any other upcoming rocking gigs like that to cover? She's awesome!

LOL, Welllll, I hear Pat Boone is coming to town!!! Gotta see if the B-i-L can arrange tickets for that one, too! It would be one wild show, I'm sure!

Yes I added to the count and had to enlarge to see the moon. Great photo.

Pat Boone??? The old legend Pat Boone???

LOL, Helen, I was just giving Guy a hard time for giving me a hard time over a concert I went to when a family member offered a free ticket. Though I suppose heavy-metal Guy does view my actual musical tastes as about the same! :D

Thanks for helping with the view counts! and I just realized I'm unintentionally doing that myself by being me and not B-n-P. Looks like I got carried away with the sun-moonset the other evening. Even with two pages, there's just too many orange shots, and I don't remember which is which!
