This is a picture of July's Full Buck Moon. The moon gets it's name because this is the time of year when the Buck Deer's antlers begin to grow and form a velvet coating. I used my Nikon D50 camera with a very strong zoom lens to capture this picture. I delayed the shutter speed to 1/2 of a second to enable me to capture more of the moon's light. The moon moves quite fast across the night sky, and if I had delayed the shutter speed any longer there would have been some ghosting effects in the picture. I've found with my years of experience taking pictures that nighttime pictures really requires a good knowledge of your digital camera's settings. You'll get optimal effects during the night when you go to full manual mode on your camera and pay close attention to shutter speed.
