They stand out against the gray tree bark. As a child, I found it fascinating that they were called pussy willows, but they were soft and furry, kind of like a rabbit's foot. Nice detail in the shot, Stan, and it's good to see you out and about taking photos.

This has a 3D look to it. The clarity is super and I like the vignetting again, too. That may have something to do with the 3D look, I'm not sure. Fantastic nature shot, Stan.

Lovely colors, textures and contrasts. They seem perfectly complimented by the grey tones of the background tree. Spring blooms are so temporary, thank you for sharing it.

They are lovely Stan. Pussy Willows have always seemed so mysterious. The lighting on these shows them off perfectly. Glad You are back and hope You are feeling better.

Very nice shot, Stan.

Being bold here..

The image works very well overall as noted by Elizabeth's; aka allisontaylor words above.

You've filled the frame with lots of interest.

And there is great balance between that of the background (good good DOF ... which in turn, serves to heighten the visual impact) and your subject matter ... the pussy willows themselves.

Clarity and focus is there in spades.

Thanks for sharing this one with us.

+favs for me.
