Rosencrantz & Guildenstern would be proud

I see this every day on the way out from work, at different times. Today, the light was just right, a low altitude sun, warm, backlighting them. Decided to have a go (after a few attempts at fill-flash, realised why it wasn't working--siblings had set it in a different mode and the sun had dropped down behind trees and buildings by that time). There was enough of a breeze that they just wouldn't stay still, and quick shots in rapid succession during a lull weren't any better. Now I know for certain how slow I can hand-hold, and this wasn't anywhere close to that limit; a faster shutter speed was used to try to freeze the swaying, which as you can see wasn't quite successful. The fine details are lacking, which may partly be due to this being a small image. In the end, despite many attempts, nothing remotely spectacular was captured...one surmises that given enough shots/combinations, at least one would be halfway useable, but no! It's like the opening scene from R&G: flipping a coin and it keeps coming up heads, defying the odds. You win some, you lose some.
