Frogger Time!

In the hopes of trying to figure out all the different features on my camera, I decided that trying to take pictures of the lunar eclipse was probably the best way to do that.

What a stupid idea that was. Most of my pics are black with a blob in the middle. Anyhow, I did get a couple that are like 1% decent to post so here we goes.....

This is one of the new buildings being built in Puerto Cancun. They've got these funky lights on the finished building and the colors at the top change from red to pink to purple to blue to green. I wouldn't say that this is the best for the mangroves or the beach or the jungle or all the animals that would normally live there. However, I am sucked in by the pretty lights against the dark sky and the how they change. This is just before the lunar eclipse started:



I will admit I did not sit out and watch the whole eclipse take place. I ran out here and there and tried to snap pics. This was the start of the eclipse:


When the moon was in total eclipse mode, it appeared a cool dark orange color. It was at this time that I discovered a new option on my camera that dragged whatever image you were focused on. Because i was impatient I didn't create anything special but you can at least see the color of the moon with this pic:

When strange planetary stuff happens, the creatures seem to come out. This little frogger wanted to know what time it was. So I told him:

It's frogger time you silly billy!

It's a Fossil watch so maybe he was trying to get in touch with his dinosaur ancestors or something. I don't know.....I mean I didn't ask. I just kinda said, let me take a picture of you next to my watch so that I can put it on my blog and people can go "woooooooo a frog!".

He said it was ok.

And I said, "You're Fun!".

(that last part was for you JJ)

    He IS a fun little frog!

    At least you actually went outside to look at the eclipse. I was here, reading or keeping the kits off the blinds. I can't even remember.

    Yay!
