   Taken in the early morning hours this first of May.  Normally for a shot of this type I would use a tripod.  But I was feeling lazy and decided to see if I could shoot it without the tripod.  I did several underexposed shots of just the moon behind the tree, then tried some full exposures just holding the camera by hand.  We're talking exposure times of up to 2 seconds, which is very difficult to hold by hand.  Nonetheless, I was able to pull the shots off.  I think it worked because there is so little detail and so much black, whatever shake is in the picture is not noticed.
