Annular Solar Eclipse

Fortune placed my home in the path of the eclipse last evening.  Since I live in the southern Nevada desert, we normally have very clear blue skies.  I had heard all the news and warnings about not looking at the sun during this eclipse.  I tried the pinhole in a paper and was able to view a tiny image of the eclipse, but couldn't take photos while holding the two cards.  I have a shade tree in my front yard and this created spaces between the leaves, with the sun shining through those holes to create lovely images of the eclipse on the front of my stucco home.  Here's some photos I was able to take.
