JL Solar Eclipse August 21, 2017

I started out with a short lens and caught the moon about 4/5 the way across the sun.
Realized I needed a longer lens, changed to my 400mm and got almost as much of the 93% eclipse as was possible for our area.
Then I got the moon as it was exiting the solar disk area.
My crabby left arm jerked, I lost some of my rigging to protect the camera lens and got this very interesting shot.
I hope that each of you in some way or another got to interact with this wonderful spectacle.
