Catkins or lamb's ears

These catkins or lamb's ears always remind me of Christmas time. It is absolutely freezing here but the sun was out this afternoon and they looked so beautiful silhouetted against the sky.

  1. I have never seen those before. They look kind of like catepillars hanging on the tree!

  7. Lovely Justine - our catkins as winter progresses normally change to a pinkish shade. I really like your bokeh.

  9. With all that beautiful light, it could actually be a summer shot, so let's just pretend, and maybe we can all warm up!!

  13. That gorgeous golden light you captured actually makes it look as if it could be warm. I know it isn't which makes your photo even more amazing.

  14. My first thoughts were that of Southern Sas. I thought they were caterpillars too. Excellent use of light.

  17. They're lovely and this is a beautiful shot. When I see these I always think we're about to enter that transition period between dying and growing. A renaissance. Aaahhhhh...
