Part of the credit has to go to Fran for finding the beautiful delicate leaves. I placed fairy lights behind the leaf and used a shallow depth of field to throw the thin narrow lights out of focus into large circles (some examples I experimented with last year) . The camera was set on Live View (image on viewing screen) allowing me to zoom in to concentrate on the detail.
