Hunter's Moon (295/365)


The Hunter's Moon is so named because plenty of moonlight is ideal for hunters shooting migrating birds in Northern Europe. The name is also said to have been used by Native Americans as they tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winters ahead.

PLACE: Podunk Illinois
SUBJECT: Hunter's Moon

I had never heard of a Hunter's Moon, but learned that it is the second full moon after the Harvest Moon. Who knew?
