I took these photos last night during the brief period when the sun and moon were aligned with my dwelling. It was an annular solar eclipse, meaning the moon was relatively distant from the Earth which meant that the moon’s orb size in the sky was not big enough to entirely block out the sun as in a total solar eclipse. But what did I care? I had these amazing shimmering crescents everywhere to look at. They are caused when tiny gaps between leaves act as pinhole cameras.
