Queen Anne's Lace

Washington, Connecticut. I was walking along a mowed area running through a meadow in the Macricostas Preserve of the Steep Rock Land Trust and the Queen Anne’s Lace was so thick I had to stop and attempt a few images. These plants are so spindly that they will not hold still in a light wind. Each time I was about to press the shutter release a nice gentle breeze came up and my subject was gone. I stuck around for thirty minutes just to get a single decent image. The upside of the breeze is that I came home without a single mosquito bite, a record for me.
