Beaver Moon

Beaver Moon over San Francisco

 

Chase the full moon with the San Francisco skyline view at Alameda. It was about 12 miles away to see it with a bit hazy and moisture over the water. It was hard to take a sharp shot of the city buildings. My favorite part was the pink sunrise colors and these early birds flying over the moon to the North Farallon Islands.

 

The Full Moon in November is named after beavers who build their winter dams at this time of year. It is also called Frost Moon and Mourning Moon, depending on the winter solstice.

 

Busy Beavers in the Moonlight

According to some sources, the Full Moon for November is named after beavers because this is the time they become particularly active building their winter dams in preparation for the cold season. The beaver is mainly nocturnal, so they keep working under the light of the Full Moon.

 

Beavers make dams of wood and mud. In the middle, they build dome-shaped homes called lodges with underwater entrances. Beavers continue to grow throughout their lives, and so do their teeth. They constantly gnaw on wood, but because the enamel in a beaver's incisors contains iron, their front teeth never wear down.

 

Chase the moon continues. It was one of the lucky snapshots of the moon, not easy at all :). Thanks for looking!
