Holland - Europe's flower garden
From early spring bloom the first plant bulbs, crocus, daffodils, hyacinths and of course tulips. For lovers of flora worth seeing is the Keukenhof - the largest collection of gardens with flower bulbs in the world, among others 6 million. tulips. Keukenhof located near the town of Lisse is open to tourists two spring months (when the tulips bloom) 25 April - 19 May.
Well worth a visit are the two largest flower auctions in Holland to underline how this tiny country supplies the world with flowers, 75% of the flowers from the auction goes to export.

A wonderful (short) depth of field,but even with the blurred background one can easily understand this picture.
Very well done...

Hi dear Monika
Great shot! Panfocus and macro appraoch but shallow exposure is very very impressive and effective!
Great job! Many thankd for your sharing and have a good day!

I really like the effect of the macro lens used outdoors and the associated shallow depth of field. the greens and yellows also create very pleasing patterns. I do find the heavy black semi-border rather disconcertting however. But for the photograph itself, top marks!

I cannot understand why such picture is so less frequented and commented on! Its a shame really
I find this quite amazing a picture with the focus, sharp in the middle and bokeh in the FG and also in the BG. You used this 'idea' well with this perspective shot!
