Waning Daytime Moon with Passing Crow
Lingering smoke haze from burning bush fires around Mutare has for the past few days obscured the Moon while close to the horizon. On the morning of 17th September the sky had cleared sufficiently for the Waning Gibbous Moon to be seen setting in daylight above Christmas Pass. By good fortune a picture taken at 7.17 am captured a passing crow.
