Daily Photos - Part 13

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Taipei 101 super moon.
It was really huge when I came from Sanchung (Sanchong) Crossing the bridge at about 8:00pm. But I did not have my camera.
I took this picture at around 9:00 pm

Nice picture - it's difficult to really see a nice white moon from Taipei.

The moon was really nice last night and incredibly bright, and being a rather full moon, strange creatures such as myself were out and about.
I was in a rush with no tripod, but I managed to grab a couple of shots on my way back through the mountains. These photos were taken by the light of the ridiculous moon.

Other strange creatures I saw included a civet cat, a couple of snakes, a deer and a turtle, of all things, which I unfortunately ran over.
The bones got the wrong detail I hoped it would have for you
Safe for a shin bone or even a hand
It's such a lonely ride...

The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight.

I love this one antarctic beech. Did you see the joke before you took the shot or did you notice after?
