Aloha Trekkers,

Finally back from the holidays! :)

Pardon me for my absence in last 8-10 days :P

- The holidays itself were wonderful especially because they were the first holidays I spent within in Germany with my son. He enjoyed it a lot and so as my wife and I :)

- I took several shots during this week-long holiday and this post is the one which I like because of the mood and charm in this picture. The day was warm and I was sitting and chasing butterflies in a large field, never minding that the Sun was scorching :P For me, the result what I get in the picture was more important :)

Though the butterfly was black and white but its presence in the colorful world attracted me a lot to the scene!

So here is the result and as usual you are the judge and hence the ball is in your court :)

Thanks for stopping by!

The beautiful BG bokeh places the maximum focus on your subject which is sharp, detailed, and clear. Excellent colors and light in an ideally composed image.
Very Well Done,

What a superb capture this is ! Great sharpness and great exposure. As usual a good composition with the flower starting in the edge. Good background too.
