The color combination along with the shallow DOF create an inviting photo. Nicely done.

Thank you!! This is the field near my home and was the most exquisite blooming :love: The weather this spring has been cooler and so the flowers are more hidden down in the grasses :(

Love the bokeh! Our poppies are about to bloom in some weeks. You gave me ideas of new ways to shoot them.

Thanks so much! This was from two springs ago...this year we have been much colder and now that the sun is out the grass has grown much faster than the poppies so I don't think we'll get this field full view :( and I'm disappointed!!

LOL, we were so thrilled last year...we moved up in April 2008 and either we were too late or they just didn't bloom much 'cuz we sure didn't have them like we did last spring!! All kinds of wildflowers...:heart:
