oak flowers...



I've been following the progress of the trees this spring, watching and photographing the new leaves just budding and forming, and the patterns that they make against the sky. I noticed these oak flowers the other day, and wanted to photograph them before they developed into full-blown leaves. Today was gray, but pleasant, and I played around with getting an angle on these that would show them up against all the surrounding branches, as they were a bit high over my head. I like this one, it looks almost like a b+w photo with a touch of color, and I love the combination of leaves and flowers, they look like little dancers.
