This pod of bursting agapanthus buds was inaccessible and growing against the wall of an area restaurant, but my zoom lens had enough reach to capture it. (Blue bokeh from fully open agapanthus blossoms, deep red bokeh from part of the restaurant’s brick wall.) (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom, f/6.3, 1/160 sec., ISO 400 in shade, handheld)

    What you can do with a hand-held camera – even with a long lens! The buds look ready to burst forth, as you say,Celeste.

  • Thank you very much, Bette! I couldn’t do this without image stabilization, which is especially helpful with a long lens mounted.

  • Thanks very much, Glenn! I was lucky with the background colors, as I think they make a big difference here.
