This is a Koru (a symbol of spiritual harmony, growth, new life, and peace). My wife and I were on our Honeymoon in New Zealand and the Ferns were growing new branches. Each new branch/leave starts out like as a Koru and then unfurls to a big leaf like in the background.

The unfurling of life is beautiful here ... :)

lots of bokeh (foreground and background) but not really a strong enough subject, and the composition isn't very interesting either. Would have been slightly more interesting if both the stems were in focus and prehaps from a slightly different angle

Not what I would consider boken, to much detail in background to me.

Nice subject not really bokeh though

Interesting shot, but I am not getting the boken here.

nice! I wish the bokeh were a bit more blurred
