24.05.11 - Baubles in the Bokeh
Despite my obvious passion for wild orchids, these beautiful Water Violets are rapidly becoming my favourite wildflower, and this is the third time in just over a week that they've featured as a Daily Pic. They are tiny and very difficult to shoot, because they are in a small mosquito infested pond, under a thick canopy of trees. But when the light shimmers like this, and you can catch the sparkles in the bokeh, they really are quite special. Ever since the latest Dgrin Challenge was called "Bottles, Baubles and Bowls", I've been thinking of recreating this effect that I first discovered a couple of weeks ago.
I've dedicated a whole gallery to these special flowers here, including many more spectacular bokeh images, and a few captures of the dreaded mossies too!
