Ducks and geese on Silver Lake watch Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) as they reflect on the meaning of life.

 

Great airmass this morning for the summer, made the comet spectacular.

 

Tech info and a larger image here.

Thanks everyone for taking a look.

 

It was nice to have a naked-eye comet to distract a little bit from those invisible bugs.

Beautiful Picture Jerry!!!

 

I know exactly where this was taken, I used to work by the lake before they tore down the office building a few years ago. I drive by there almost every day.  I may take a ride over one night this week and try taking a picture. Thanks for posting and for the inspiration.
