    I've shot a few holes in this nest, but they won't leave. Notice the one keeping the nest cooler by beating his wings. These are red wasps, one of the worst wasps you can run across, believe me.

    Great moon shot ! What settings did you use ?

    I've read a little about the 'Loony 11' rule for shooting the moon but all my attempts just result in a white blob in the sky.

    I posted the exif. The camera warns that the shutter speed is too fast since it's still dark. I used manual focus since the auto focus just won't work, maybe not enough light. The sky was actually starting to turn a little blue, but I could not capture that.

    I got this shot the other night with a tripod. It was at night. It's hard to not get a halo around it too. Exif posted.
