March moon and Venus
I didn't meant to capture these shots on the camera but I happened to wander out of the house at about seven o'clock this morning to take a look at the mess which the dried leaves and flowers had left on the road. And it was just by instinct that I glanced upwards to see whether there was any sign of Venus in the brightening sky. Yes, I saw the miniscule Venus, still unblinkingly bright, but I also saw the thin crescent of the waning March moon. Pretty soon it will be the new moon again.
