RE: Cult Windy Photos

I have used stakes made of clothes hanger for smaller plants and thin bamboo garden stakes for TBs. Put them behind stalk and tie with green ties. This helps keep stalk from whipping. Then wait for brief break in the wind, "click" Also in desperation I have cut stalk (SDB) or flower & short stem (Branch) of TB and taken it into a sheltered area.   You nan only do this last procedure in your own garden or with permision of garden owner. Also inrease speed of photo (decrease shutter opening (f-stop ie from 22 to 2.8, ). This will decrease the depth of field, that is only the area directly in front of camera will be in focus and background will be blurred.
