Took this the morning of a Scouting event. I decided to get up early and see what sunrise might present and took a walk before breakfast. This shot developed just about the time I was about done. I'd been wading around an area with cattails and various grasses and wasn't getting quite what I wanted. As I was headed to the dining hall this small section of seed heads was wonderfully backlit with the rising sun. Had a hard time isolating only a couple of the seed heads and was disappointed after getting home that the two main ones weren't as sharp throughout as I'd hoped, but I did like the bokeh. :-) Some of the other attendees at this Scout event I think were wondering about me as I showed up for breakfast with my pant legs soaked from the knees down! Very, very wet this morning. :-D

Super back-lighting. Not entirely sure I like the bokeh your lens has produced, but I do still like the image.
