I had not even noticed that second bug. I love the bokeh too. Just a lovely photo.

Thank you Kell and Petra,

What is a "Bokeh ?"

Northern California, CA(Zone 9b)

It is the blurred background which in your photo repeats the in focus part. Nice effect!

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.

Gee, I thought the aperture was the reason. Shows how little I know.

I know nothing too, Pirl!

Hey Kell, I am sure everyone misses you on the C& S forum! You had the most entertaining threads. Hope all is great where you are so far away.

I am good, getting old though. LOL. So I know it can always get worse.

Take care!

I have not had a great lot to add to C&S lately.
All the Cacti have Flowered.
And a lot of my experimental seed gathering are going well.

I have been posting on the Bird forum lately.
Feel free to pop in and add some comments.
The Birding forum has been very quiet lately.
It used to be the most busy a year ago.
