Pussy willow catkin

13/52 for the group 2014 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

 

This week's theme was: M is for Macro

 

I'm not entirely happy with this. The focus is a smidgen soft. I could have done with brighter light to reduce the shutter speed. As it was, I only managed a couple of shots that were in focus. My tripod isn't really heavy enough to hold the camera perfectly still when it has the big zoom/macro lens on it.

 

Anyway, spring is definitely starting to spring and the trees are all busy throwing out catkins and filling the air with pollen -- which is making me sneeze!
