This was taken at Sherbourne National Wildlife Refuge. We sat watching this swan while he was grooming himself and then I got lucky as he flapped his wings to shake the water off. It was an overcast day so everything was muted, but I really like the white on white look with this beautiful bird.
Using free-lensing (removing the lens from the camera and tilting it to achieve a blurred look) I kept only a small part of the center of the this dandelion sharp while the rest is soft and dreamy. For tips on how to free-lens click here: www.mworm.photography/blog/2017/6/free-lensing-tips
I love using selective focus to draw your attention to a certain element in a picture. Here I got close with a macro lens using a wide aperture so that just a few of those lovely curled petals were in focus while the rest went soft.

After a light rain late this summer I was outside and noticed this perfectly placed droplet on a bleeding heart leaf. I quickly attached a macro lens to my iphone (you can find many different kinds on Amazon, but olloclip is my fav) and took a close up photo. I then processed it using the Snapseed app to add saturation and contrast.
