Playing with Bokeh

I have learned a new term in photography: bokeh. According to Wikipedia, Bokeh (from the Japanese boke ボケ, "blur") is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens. I am realizing that I am a HUGE fan of this effect. And I am not alone. There are several groups on flickr devoted solely to this effect. So it being a beautiful morning, I took the camera out and played with my Macro lens attachment and aperture. Not being a professional, I am happy with these results.
