Floating Daffodils

At last I seem to be getting the hang of this shallow depth of field malarky. This was taken in the garden on a damp February morning - it was damp because of fog, rather than rain, which makes a change.
The focal plane is really shallow at this distance and f1.8 - tghe front two daffs are in focus, the back one is dropping out and the background of leaves and earth has dropped into bokeh quite nicely. No flash was used in the making of this shot.
