Beechwoods in Leaf 2

On the 1st May I commented on the variable behaviour of the trees coming into leaf.  This picture from around then shows an extreme case of a dense crown on one tree amid an almost bare tracery of branches on others.  Nature conforms to repeated cycles of change, but there are always variations, an unpredictability that makes the natural world full of endless delights.   The photograph is also an example of slow photography: two and a half months to use the whole cassette of film and then get it processed.  Delayed gratification, like nature, is therapeutic.
