Swan and bokeh

This has been a toughy! @susanharvey asked me to use bokeh in a photograph for get pushed this week. Simple........ not so. I have other shots with what I thought were "bokeh" in but always by accident. I asked google what "bokeh in photography" was and the answer was the blurring of a background with a sharply focused subject. Lots of advice on how to achieve it. I had always thought that bokeh was the name for the little light cirlces/sparkles that appeared in shots. So now I feel a little confused! Here is my offering for the challenge - with artifically created bokeh, who knows if it is right??!! Answers on a post card.........
I though what you thought!!! Out if focus background with twinkles = bokeh!! This is cleverly done Anne, nailed the challenge.

I thought Bokeh was out of focus lights in the background - agree with JackieR - this is beautiful.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Glad you had the same thoughts Jackie, we can be wrong (or right) together!
@paul10 Thanks Paul
@megpicatilly Maybe it's one of those things that means different things to different people??
@hermann Thank you Sally, I appreciate your encouragement

Well done! I didn’t find it easy to achieve on purpose either
I’ve been on vacation this week, and between little or no internet, haven’t had a chance to post anything. I’ll be updating in the next day or two with your sky challenge for me

@susanharvey Thanks Susan, I used a string of fairy lights for the background. Hope you had a fab time away
