I was able to make quick passes at the local arboretum and a nearby garden in between my kids' basketball and soccer games. Not a lot going on yet, but enough to see that spring is really here.

Thank you for your comments, guys. Nothing in post-processing related to bokeh. The last two shots were taken with a 50mm/f1.2, wide open. I don't always love that effect, but sometimes the wild abstractness of it appeals to me.

I've never seen that before. Pretty amazing. Your other shots were also fantastic.

Viking Guy - I realized that maybe I told a half-lie when I said there was nothing in post processing related to bokeh. What I did do was to crop those last two pictures in a way that accentuated the amount of bokeh craziness. Otherwise, the bokeh is a combination of the lens and sun reflections.

John - thank you for your comment.
