[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another "beard", this one is the "Goat's Beard", quite larger than the "Old Man's Beard" I posted yesterday.

I used a very low f-stop to get very blurred background. I must have overdone it a bit, as the tips of bracts are somewhat out of focus. At the same time it does give the pic some depth.

Well composed pic showing good detail and sharpness of the subject. The OOF BG, DOF, POV and lighting are all very well done.

Hello Ishi

Beautiful presentation Ishi and particularly this low F-stop use is quite adventurous even at the cost of a few bracts, because it really brings out forward the interesting colourful sharp middle.

Très belle macro finement détaillée et délicatement colorée sous un bon angle de prise de vue.
