More than 70 Disney character topiaries represent the largest collection of Disney character topiary in the world at the 17th annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

At least 25 different plants, grasses and mosses of various colors, including pink and red begonias, dusty miller, palm fiber, palm seeds, ficus and lichen, are used to create and define features of the festival topiaries. More color has been added to the topiaries than in any previous topiary presentation. Here are just a few of those amazing topiaries.

    The topiaries are beautiful, but why are the the pictures so blurry?

  2. Jonathan Grant says:

    Great question, Jazmine! Most of these photos were taken using a special lens that allows the photographer to select what part of the shot stays in focus, and what part blurs.

    I think the lens adds a wonderful quality to the pictures!! Really interesing choice. Did you use a special lense for the first picture as well…the colors are so vivid.

  6. Jonathan Grant says:

    Thanks Erin! Nothing special used for the first shot… just a wide-angle lens and a 15 second exposure.

  7. You have a great eye Jonathan and a real talent for composition. I love the Mickey and Minnie photo. Until I read your responses, I thought the blurred photos were done in Photoshop. Nice work.
