Bill, I wonder if it is

Bill, I wonder if it is possible to take slightly sharper images as this set you are producing of the trees and shrubs is potentially a very useful identification guide. Perhaps putting the camera on a small tripod to hold it steady or steadying it on a box or other item that may be to hand.

sharper images

The images taken yesterday are not good. Not really sure why, probably a focus issue. I will retake this week and post again. There will be quite a number of photos. I will post them gradually so that identification can be confirmed, or corrected. This is a much more interesting project than I expected. Detailed bud study is new to me, but very similar to much work done in a past life on agricultural grain crops.

Thanks for your help with past IDs.
