Lovely capture, Colleen - especially if it was windy! If I try anything like this, the wind always blows at the wrong moment! Sad

You've mastered shallow depth of field so well.
With the bokeh it's like an Impressionist painting.
Hurried comment from sunny Australia.
Met Jocelia and Western Red - lots of talk.
