Default Bokeh - your best, please

I would appreciate seeing your best example of beautiful bokeh. I'm teaching a class on photography and would love to cull examples of great bokeh that my students could peruse in one thread. Thanks!

So is Bokeh just the circles that appear or general " out of focus " ?
