Full Wolf Moon

According to The Farmer's Almanac, the January Full moon is known as the Full Wolf Moon because during "the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages."  Today's temperatures were in the high 40s.  Tomorrow is forecast to be in the 50s.  If there are wolves howling out there, it's because they're celebrating this unusual almost-Spring like weather.

P.S.  Sorry to be gone so long.  Between prepping for a home improvement project, the holidays, and a winter vacation, I didn't have time for posting.  I was still taking photos, though, so I should be able to post more regularly.

Beautiful job on this photo! I love photos of the moon and have yet to take one I like myself.

Welcome back! Great moon photo. It's been cloudy for the last couple of full moons so it's nice to see this one.
