Viburnum opulus berries

Taken at the Hawthorns Wildlife Centre on Southampton Common at the end of September, after a shower of rain which seemed to make the berries glow a very bright red.

Hi ellie, it's beautiful.
i love the colour of berries and looks like have a good taste wink
EJWilkins: I'm glad you like this Dudee. I know these berries are eaten by birds, but I've never checked whether they are OK for people or not.

This is an excellent picture, Ellie. It seems as if the berries are layered for the photo opportunity
EJWilkins: Thanks Louis. I chose the 'best bit' of the shrub deliberately, the berries were almost cascading downwards, and the leaves complimented them too.
Lovley berries. Nice colors. I like the overall composition of the snap. smile
EJWilkins: Thank you Sarthak smile

it is a nice selection of red and green leaves with the tones in the middle. those berries look sparkly. i would eat those if someone let me. ~S.
EJWilkins: Hi Sorcha, and thanks for dropping by. The berries sure do look tasty, I don't know if they're edible though. smile

I like how you composed this with all the wild color in the middle framed by more subdued greens on the outside. Very nicely done!
EJWilkins: Hi Martin. Thank you, nature played the most important part, I was lucky to spot it and take the picture. smile
Hi Ellie. Yes those berries do seem to glow and what a lovely shade of red they are too. This is a beautiful photo, very well composed and framed. Super focus and DOF. In short Excellent work. Many regards, Neil.
EJWilkins: They do glow Neil, you're right. I'm delighted by your comment, thank you.
Fantastic colours. Great vision of part of a reality.
EJWilkins: Thank you Jesquilo, I am delighted you like this picture.
Oooh, I have one like this, Ellie! Gorgeous tones, girl! They look good enough to eat. Nice shot.

If we were using the SAS survival guide then i would say avoid red in nature or give it to someone else, try waiting 12 hours then have a go. Assuming you have marks and spencers or something else close by then i would try foraging for food there first before eating these. Nice shot ellie.

Nice picture, beautifully presented...somehow you have managed to capture opaqueness of the berries perfectly.

Nice shot Ellie, the mix of leaves and berries certainly makes for a vibrant picture. The tree I shot didn't have any leaves left at all. Strange that the berries are around for so long (I shot mine in mid-November).
Beautiful picture, really nice
Lovely colors.
