Day 9 - Mystery Plant

Another shot from the farm. I'm not sure what this plant is but there are patches of it all around the pond at the farm. I like its softness and the different shades of brown on it. I was trying to capture the snowflakes that were landing on it but it was a bit tricky as there was a bit of a breeze. Oh well, it wouldn't be fun if there weren't any challenges, right?

I agree with Giseled- am enjoying the camera settings as well. I recognize the plant as one from around here too, but no clue on the name. Nice macro work, though!

Nice DOF. And I know what you mean by shooting with the breeze- it's a challenge.
