Last Night’s Moon

I noticed the crescent moon last night so I tried a few things with my camera.  Sometimes what it sees isn’t what we see with the naked eye.  The following is probably what most of us saw with our eyes.

The following is what I saw through the lens as I made adjustments to the camera settings.

And the following is another view I was able to capture.

Then as I was heading back inside I noticed these reflections on the pond.

I am having fun as I push the limits of the excellent image stabilization of the E-M5 II.  These were taken handheld at shutter speeds between 0.05 and 0.5 sec at 270 or 300 mm focal length …. An equivalent of 600 mm.
