Nice shot with a very smooth bokeh.

I always love the world-in-a-raindrop pictures! Yours is very well done - I've taken a number of them and have a low keeper ratio, so I know how hard they can be, and I can't think of any that are quite this good, certainly not any that I've taken in the past year.

Thank you all... sometimes I'm just lucky, the image was there for the taking.

You can really feel the cool dampness of early spring.

Very nice macro. I am still not sure what Bokeh is so I'll leave that to those who already commented on it!

Bokeh is the background out-of-focus area of the image. Had the OP chosen a smaller aperture, the background would be more distinguishable and consequently more distracting for this type of picture. The blurriness pattern (if you will) varies according to the lens, the number of blades it has and the shape it forms.
