no, not the Carly Simon song, but a somewhat early, and optimistic, image in anticipation of spring!! shot this pussywillow a couple of years ago at a local park with my old 30D and Sigma EX80-400 lens, 400mm, 1/500 @ f/9 from about 6 feet away...

Perfect background/bokeh for this ... earthy tones all round. Very nice.

*ahem*
"I know a little pussy
her coat is silver gray
she lives down in the meadow
about a mile away.
she'll always be a pussy
she'll never be a cat
because she's a pussy willow
now what do you think of that?"

:D not a poem they recite in school anymore but I don't know why :angel:
