Wet Willows

Damp dreary days don’t normally draw me out with my camera but after such a long, cold and snowy winter, I was eager to get out in spite of the soggy conditions. Driving some back roads in a light drizzle I noticed what I thought was pussy willows on the branches in the ditches.

The light rain was clinging to the branches creating the effect of soft, white pussy willows.

There were also willows starting to bud with furry catkins present.

I was entranced the juxtaposition of the buds above and droplets below. Then noticed tiny droplets that appear as bulging eyes on the the buds at the end of the branch! I was wishing I had brought my tripod to more effectively zoom in for a clear shot.

A few other branches held some different bud and droplet configurations.

A wet day well spent.
