Floating Flowers

These flowers enchant me.  I have no idea what the name of them is. 
They make my shutter finger just itch to try to capture them. 
I like to experiment with my macro lens as wide open as I can get. 
I love to see the stems disappear and the background blur. 

The only problem with that is it gives a very shallow depth of field so only a small spot is in focus and sometimes barely that it seems. 

So I tried. I hope you enjoy my floating flowers. 

Sharing with Nick at FLORAL FRIDAY FOTOS

& Denise at An English Girl Rambles for TODAYS FLOWERS.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
