Thank you Kell and Petra, What is a "Bokeh ?"

It is the blurred background which in your photo repeats the in focus part. Nice effect! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh

Thanks Kell, I take more than 60,000 Pictures a year and I have never heard of that word. Your link was a great help. THANKS. Did you have a great Xmas ? Xmas Eve, Xmas Day and Boxing Day was 37 deg C. A tad hot even for us permanent residents/locals. Swimming Pool is getting a fair workout.
