The moon was out this afternoon long before the sun set. It was nearly full and very bright in the eastern sky.

This photo was one of the sharpest shots. I darkened and contrasted it to show more of the detail in the photo.

While I was watching the moon lots of birds flew through, high in the sky. I tried for photos but they were small birds, very high up, and very fast. This was the best I could do, but good enough to say that the birds were Barn Swallows.
