Birch Catkins
Comments(3) # Birch Catkins london e10

So, as Sally correctly guessed, Saturday's mystery out of focus shot was of some catkins. I am somewhat surprised that anyone managed to guess this one as I thought the blurred version looked far more like other things than what it was. Particularly birds feet. Indeed it was its likeness to a birds foot that first made me want to take the photo....the out of focus version was just one of those lucky accidents but once seen I felt I had to share it with you. Interestingly, given the yellow particularly apparent in the out of focus version, these catkins aren't actually yellow when they actually come out, they're more of a rusty red colour. Canon EOS 5D
