A fleeting moment.

Insubstantial.

You decide!

Jim, Can you tell us how you got the shot, or is it a trade secret? ;)

No trade secret. I originally set up a tripod and started blowing a few bubbles out but it was too windy to get them in focus so I got one of my sons to blow some bubbles in the garden and I went chasing after them.Used manual focus and just kept shooting.Didn't think I'd got a good one until I put them on the computer.Worth the effort in the end though.It's a pity there is some lens flare in the bottom half(canon 100 macro doesn't have a hood >:()

That's an amazing picture - it would certainly have thrown open the competition.
