[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The willows are deciduous trees and shrubs in the genus Salix, part of the willow family Salicaceae.

There are about 350 species in this genus worldwide, found primarily on moist soils in cooler zones in the Northern Hemisphere. The leaves are deciduous, often elongate but round to oval in a few species, and with a serrated margin. Willows are dioecious with male and female flowers appearing as catkins on different plants; the catkins are produced early in the spring, often before the leaves or as the new leaves open.

Hi Viera,

New life in pure details. I like the colors and the composition you made.TFS.


I am still wondering whether this is a caterpillar or a flowery growth on the willow tree.
Close scrutiny persuades me to go for the latter possibility.
Interesting composition.

Fascinating image, so much detail, shape and colour to look at.

Fantastic macro view of this bud. The variety of textures, lines, and colors are beautifully accented by the backlighting. Well done.

Hi Viera,
I really like this picture!
The composition here is just great, you played great with the light and curves to get his game of light/shadows.
A very artistic presentation!
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
