I decided to bike home in a hurry to share the moment with my daughter, and noticed that the dappled light through the trees was making crescent-shapes on the park bike path. And sure enough, when I got home, the shadows under our pear tree held many crescents.
Not sure I'll ever see this so clearly again in my lifetime. It's kind of amazing, when you really think about it!
