Last Spinning Jenny

Spotted this bare Sycamore tree in the middle of Winter with a solitary winged seed still attached to a twig, helplessly fluttering in a cold breeze. The scientific name for these aerodynamic wonders is Samara, but more than often they get referred to as ‘helicopters’ or ‘whirligigs’ because of their rotating action when the seeds leave the tree; however it is from my neck-of-the-woods that they are known by a most affectionate colloquialism that conjures up images of childhood innocence and times gone-by – ‘Spinning Jenny’.

*Shot on a Canon 40d 10mp dSLR using a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS mkll lens with settings at ISO-160, lens at f/5.6, metering mode set to centre weighted average and an exposure time of 1/60 seconds*
