Idyll # 290 The Beaver Moon Idyll
It was a beautiful moon last night. Technically not the full moon, that was Sunday night, but close enough.
Full Beaver Moon - November This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.
I was thinking as I was setting up this photograph last night that if it wasn't cloudy every one of the Idyllers could be looking at the same view. How neat!
