Imperfect View

White butterfly on flower.

A more skilled photographer would have noticed the blurred twigs impinging on the image as it was taken, and perhaps shifted to get them out of frame.

But, by then, the butterfly would have flown. I am content to have this imperfect image rather than none at all.

    One suspects that imperfection is a more accurate capturing of reality.

    I usually TRY to blur the background to draw attention to the foreground.

    I too often deliberately have a shallow depth of field. But I try to avoid blurred objects in the foreground that impinge on my main subject as they do here.
