Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #194 – Bokeh

In this week’s Lens Artists photo challenge, Sofia tells us that bokehis the pleasing or aesthetic quality of out-of-focus blur in a photograph.” My 40-150mm lens is pretty good at creating this effect without me having to think too hard about it. Here are a few examples from the last couple of weeks. The first one shows lots of blurry branches from the trees behind – not perhaps the most effective bokeh, but I like the bee in flight.

Bumblebee and bird cherry

The next three have all a green blurred background as spring is here and everything is greening up nicely.

crab apple blossom
Lesser celendine

Thanks to Sofia for a great challenge.
