Holly Berries

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 21 April 2010 in Plant & Nature.

Another shot of plants beside my home. The berries are developing and have now reached the size of large peas. The bees are active around the bushes and I'm waiting for the first hummingbird of the season to arrive.

Good morning Don,
It is a fantastic close up and very beautiful picture. It conveys the feeling to stand in front of it. Every detail can be seen very well. The colors are natural, clear and brilliant. The blur / sharpness as background, is a great effect.
5 Stars ***** for it. Thanks for the mail. More in the next few days. Today's vision to the outside is cloudy and it is very cool. But now, at this moment the sun comes out a bit. Perhaps it will be a beautiful sunny day.
I wish you a beautiful sunny day and health.
Dear greetings Christel

Superb DOF. Wonderful detail. See that you took this with your S90; sweet little camera that voids all excuses for not having a camera with you at all times.
