“Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?”

“Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?”, apparently said by Leonardo da Vinci.

The neighbors had some very pretty, very illegal fireworks.

We had some very pretty, legal ones.


Have you ever zoomed in on pieces of fireworks photos? Some very pretty shapes in there. This one reminds me of pine needles on the Ponderosa pine trees where I grew up.

Top left is either a fairy or angel, bottom right is a dragonfly:

Here's a fiery helicopter:

Here's a wooly deer or ram:
And then on my porch at home was this very odd moth with a cross or sword on its wings:

According to google, its a Haploa clymene (Clymene Moth), a type of tiger moth. Never seen one before.

Hallo from north Norway. Last week I saw all Sky Watch Friday photos and they were all great, and I hope to see them all this week too. I love to travel around the world this way.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful sky watch and have a great weekend!
