Check out this awesome photo of the eclipse.  Then scroll down to see the camera itself.

Ayup, there's the kind of camera that Chris from Schrodinger's Heroes would use to take a picture.  :D

See Coalbrookdale.  As noted, Tolkien lived near this place, so if you want to see the woods of Middle Earth, this is part of the inspiration.

My partner Doug found this awesome image of eclipse crescents scattered over historic buildings in Portland.

I didn't have time to get outside much today, but I saw this tiger swallowtail feeding beside the barrel garden. So I grabbed my camera and took a bunch of pictures. This is one of the best.  Of the caterpillar hosts for this species, I have wild cherry, basswood, ash, and willow; of the favorite nectar plants I have wild cherry, lilac, and milkweed.  We usually see some of these butterflies in summer, but they're not as common as some other species.  They're a personal favorite.  :D
