Yes, suddenly I notice that spring is busting out all over. Little sign of it until about a week ago and suddenly it has appeared. Are these catkins?

I think that they are catkin buds but I am not 100% sure

I think these are called pussy willow at this stage, anyway nice to see things starting to happen again, and fingers crossed that the weather gets a bit drier and warmer from now on.
Not sure where the camera has picked up to focus as unfortunately it all seems slightly out of focus on my monitors, which is a pity, but see if anyone else has thoughts on it.

Keith posted this shot here on the 6th March last year, so I thought things would be happening a bit earlier this year, seen as we have had a mild although wet winter.
No matter though, noticed the buds on a Willow tree this morning and they were just a little behind this, not bad for the 54th Parallel
Anyway a nice shot, but as Jeffrey says just a tad out of focus, some sharpening may help, however I still like it, well spotted.

I'm having trouble finding anything sharp in the image Steve. I note the focal length but I'm wondering if this is a rather large crop. A large amount of sharpening does help but then, because of the shallow dof, the eye jumps around the image from one 'sharp' spot to the next. I can see what you were trying to achieve with the shallow dof Steve but there just wasn't enough depth to get the main subject all in focus - hence the jumping around. Full marks for having a go though!
