Limited Depth of Focus - Great Bokeh!

Challenge #5 in the A bit of everything series. Hosted by udaman.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge, look for subjects that will pop out of the photo when using a large f/stop (old school term meaning a large aperture opening -- f/1, f/1.2, f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, f/3.5, f/4). I am looking for "JUST" the subject to be in focus, and the background very "Out of Focus". Hint to beginners: Use a longer focal length and move closer to the subject. . Open Subject matter.
