Philadelphia Fleabane catch the morning sun down along Brush Brook in Huntington.

This shot was influenced by another photographer I follow on WordPress, Paul Davis. He tends to take a lot of shots of flowers and grasses with very narrow depth of field to really hone in on his subject while allowing the bokeh to really bloom behind. It takes a really fast lens (f/1.8 or f/2.8) to accomplish this. My macro lens can pull it off, but f/4.8 was the best I could do with the lens I had on the camera at the moment. Still, the effect is there…
