"How was it for Yew!"

I'm sure we have all seen the wafts of yew pollen blowing about.
I hadn't realised that the males flowers "eject" parcels of pollen as they "ripen", no wind required.
Knowing where to point the camera was the biggest problem, Pro Capture did the rest.
The animation was created from the series of photos.

One shot from mid-ejection.
