Missed this stage of growth last year, a day makes all the difference.

This is a tricky shot because these are terminal buds at the end of a long slender branch that is constantly sweeping across the field of view even when there is almost no wind.

For to achieve any depth of field it is necessary to stop down strongly, here at f/22 but this extended the exposure time to 1/20 of a second which could be heard clearly. Although fine hairs and leaf are in sharp detail other areas even within the depth of field range appear a little soft possibly due to object movement.

Solution, use two tripods, one to secure the tip of the branch from moving and one for the camera and maybe bumping the ISO up a little.
