Look at all that bokeh! So professional. You must have a really good camera to take such good pictures… JUST KIDDING. :)
In all honesty I really do like the composition of the first one. My eye keeps going to the one flower that is in focus. I can’t quite tell if you added texture to these in post or if that gorgeous background is all from the 85mm. Either way I like them both.
That is ALL from the 85mm!!
I swear…time stands still for you and your camera. Everything you photograph – whethere it’s flowers, birds, bees – they seem to lay down for you almost begging you to take a shot. Three words: YOU. ARE. TALENTED.

Aww you are beyond kind!!
i looked up and down and up again…i love them both. no favorite this time!!
YAY it’s like a challenge LOL!
As always, such lovely photos. Very ethereal, beautiful photos.
Thank you so much Danielle!
Ok, I definitely need that lens. And also photography lessons. If I ever win the lottery I am flying you here to give them to me personally!! You’re pictures are fantastic!
Is the 85mm only for bokeh? (also, what exactly is bokeh? I only have a vague idea)
I am in LOVE with this lens. I haven’t really touched my macro lately at all!!
For bokeh, Wikipedia says it best! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh
No, it’s a good lens no matter how wide open you are, but I love bokeh LOL
These are sooooo lovely!
Apologies I’ve not been around – am feeling blah and in a slump…..wish I could get some of that momentum back!
Your photos really are poetic though — you manage to capture light….
Hope you are well!
Awww thank you SO much!!!
