77/366: Twinkling Weeds

77/366: Twinkling Weeds
This is another shallow depth of field image where only the closest sepals are in focus. It was intentional because I love the way everything begins to fade out into bokeh. I like to stop and appreciate these leftover flower stalks when I see them because the nearly transparent, dried sepals glow so luminously when any light hits them. I found this in September of 2013, a time of year that is bone-dry and brown everywhere. These illuminated weeds add a much appreciated sparkle to a sea of gold and brown. (Question: is "sepals" the right word here? I am not sure, so if you know better, please let me know in a comment! :)

This is stunning.

Not knowing the flower.. but going by the look.. thinking they are the Petals ? Sepal is a different part.

Absolutely exquisite image, Janet! I love your use of shallow depth of field to bring attention to these beautiful little flowers :-))
