The inherant shallow depth of field and the beautiful buttery bokeh a quality lens produces creates stunning effect. The diffuculty was the breeze, enough to move the flowers a few milimetres in and out of focus so it took a few shots to get this one. Finally I used a flash to “stop” the anther movement capturing them “in focus”.
