Crocuses, and a lot of them. Nice effort but IMO, at least one or two should be in focus. Either the front ones or someplace where the focus is obvious. If not that then at least Part of one. At the size shown, I'm not seeing that.

Great color and bokeh. I really like the bokeh.......
I do agree it needs to be a bit sharper.
What did you shoot this with?
55-300 is what it says, but the EXIF shows a 28mm @2.8.
At 2.8 you need to very careful about focus at close range, as depth of field is quite narrow.

Unless that Miranda is an A type lens, you need to be shooting in M mode on your camera with it. Otherwise it will always shoot wide open.

Nice picture. Great bokeh, but I have to agree on the confusing focus. I don't know which aperture you used, but it might be a good idea to use a smaller aperture to get a deeper field of focus (not too much though).
