I apologize in advance for the bouncing video, but I CAUGHT the eclipse – using the glasses held in front of my iPhone’s camera lens – during a Facebook™ LIVE session 😎
The birds were so confused … the sky turning dark as it did, disoriented them so that they were swooping down and flying erratically. I suppose they are typically where they’d roost for the night, when it turns to dusk.
Thinking you’re alone, only to hear the eruptions of cheers by your (unseen) neighbors was really an unique experience.
My husband and I were sharing a pair of glasses, so I had to wait for the safety of totality before I could film.
But I got ‘er done. ❤️X💯 Still image is my favorite from our area.
