Photo Of The Day: American Beauty Berries

f0033.edited

II had never heard of these before relocating to the Family Farm. Never seen them either.  They grow wild along the edges of the woods and produce purple berries early every fall.   I’d been here for several years before I came across them.  I’m told the birds simply beat me to them.  They feast on the berries quickly stripping the branches and in the process help to reseed the plants.     I like photographing them as much as the birds like to eat them.  The leaves are quite thin  and translucent  making for great light play.  Shot with a Nikon 60mm Micro lens on a D7k Camera.

Thanks for the look.  Have a nice Sunday Evening and a terrific week ahead.
