|Venus (lower) and Jupiter (higher) less than three degrees apart in the evening sky.|
A single tree prevented this alignment while the osprey was awake, and the bird was sleeping when I could finally align the nest with Venus and Jupiter. I set the exposure for four seconds but held my hands over the front of my lens for the first three so shutter vibrations would dampen on my shaky tripod. Still a little blurry, oh well. Just being outside and witnessing the event was well worth half a pint of blood that the mosquitoes extracted as payment.
