Float On

By ctxuk  
Just like the song, Float on by The Floaters 1977 RnB at its finest back then [perhaps]

Float, float on (You better float with me now)
Float on, float on (Float on)
Float, float, float on (Yeah, yeah)
(You better float on)
(Float on)

So, no Modest Mouse involved who used the same title for a track 27 or so years later.

Anyhow, back to the Flutterbys who inspire dreamy thoughts of sunshine, sunny skies warmth and the odd summer thunderstorm perhaps. Drifty dreamy haze, flowers, pollen, grass and mowers.

Sometimes it is not a tack sharp front to back image that is required, colour, position give artistic merit and imply so much more than clarity of detail throughout.

A Nikon PK adaptor used for this shot.

Thank you dudler! More for the comment than the award though both appreciated. The words though indicate to myself an understanding of intent to myself in the image.

Shap where it needs to be.
A very good example of using a wide apertue for close-up photography. Going much smaller would make the background intrusive and distracting. Nice one.
