Moonrise + Flower Timelapses

I finally got an intervalometer (for my birthday) and I have been looking for any excuse I can find to put it to use. Most things just don't need to be shown in timelapse, but I didn't let that stop me. The result was a lot of mediocre short videos, but also a lot of valuable lessons in timelapse creation.

With or without the intervalometer, I was waiting for the perfect storm of a full moon rising directly behind the city skyline on a clear night (ever since clouds ruined the most recent supermoon for me), and it finally came along. In this first video, the moon is not actually full, but it's close. There are still some technical glitches to work out on the next timelapse, but more lessons were learned, and I think this looks pretty cool.

On a sunny Saturday I decided to see if I could catch the crocuses opening in front of our house. It took them a lot longer than I expected, probably because it was rather cold out, so I had to cut it short, but it does open most of the way, and a fly even comes to visit the flower before the end.
