quaking aspen

Most people have heard aspen trees referred to as quaking aspen. This title is given because the slightest breeze lends motion to their leaves. Motion is a defining characteristic of the aspen. While this image is motion and a bit of soft focus, to me it expresses the quaking aspen perfectly!
