Gras in the Wind

While taking a walk, I noticed some gras swaying in the wind. It was amazingly hard to capture what I was looking for - one or two stalks perfectly in focus and the others blurred either because of motion or because of depth of field issues.

The depth of field for the lens at aperture 2.8 was minimal at the given distance. This was intended to achieve the desired effect, but it had the consequence that the swaying of the grasses in the wind made it almost impossible to focus. So I pre-focused and tried to capture the stalks as they passed through the plane of focus.

The image is not exactly what I was looking for, but it is pretty close.
