Blood Moon almost gone by metalpug
Blood Moon almost gone
Later shot of the eclipse.  After tis, my camera could not find/focus on the moon.  It was too dark.  Glad I got what I got, even if it was a hazy hazy night.

So, my camera is all freaked out with me over this attempt to take eclipse photos.  It was an extreme zoom lens, very very humid in Florida after a day of rain, and I had to scan the sky with the camera to find the moon to photograph it (it's odd, but there is no eye piece to digital cameras).  Plus, I could not use a flash for these.  My camera, at one point, freaked out and took a picture by itself.  I think it's neat....and, heck, maybe it's a parallel world! :)
A change of pace:  Blood Moon by metalpug
A change of pace: Blood Moon
So, last night I was thrilled to discover that my camera actually can capture photos of the moon with an extreme zoom in, setting it down on something to serve as a stand (hands too shaky, apparently, because I am doing stuff like looking up and's a really extreme zoom in, too), and focus.  I was also thrilled that the clouds parted and allowed me to watch the eclipse, when so many of my friends reported that they could not see it.  Here is the half eclipse phase and my first-ever successful moon photo. (I know, I need practice but I'm still excited!) #superbloodmoon 
Devil Maid by metalpug
Devil Maid
So, this is tonight's work -- and maybe my last Hallowe'en piece.  Fallen Mermaid? Devilmaid?  Succubus?  Siren?  What do I call this one?  Painted red wire, attached/upcycled bat decoration wings, black wire, and gray wire for the hair.  I had to sew the wings on with thin wire.  She was brutal.  But I like her....that's my kind of mermaid.
