Strawberry Moon - Friday the 13th, June 2014

it's a rare occurrence - a full moon on a Friday the 13th, and not one to let pass by without taking some pictures.  The last one came back on October 13, 2000.  The next one won't come around until August 13, 2049.  Though there's nothing particularly significant about a full moon on a Friday the 13th, except for the convergence of probabilities.

A full moon in June is sometimes called a "strawberry moon" - an appellation that allegedly comes from the native americans.  In Europe (where strawberries are not native) it is referred to a "rose moon."
