My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is Holly (Ilex aquifolium) berries.
Technically they’re a fruit rather than a berry. They are a popular winter food source for a variety of birds as well as being a traditional Christmas decoration.
These berries were photographed on a mature female tree in a garden in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
This Ivy growing up a tree trunk on the South Bruce Peninsula is a regular subject on my walks around the neighborhood.
Taken on a recent walk when I had a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to the mirrorless camera I was using. I rather like the soft, slightly swirly edges of the frame the lens produces.
