Last week’s full moon put on a bright show in Bent Tree. The photo below was taken on Wednesday, and the photo above was taken on Thanksgiving. The November full moon is known as the “Beaver Moon”. According to Native American lore, this is the time of year to set beaver traps to ensure a good supply of warm furs for the winter, before the swamps freeze over, and while the beavers are actively preparing for winter.
