Wonderful red and macro shot!

maryt/theteach said...

A perfect macro shot, EG! You need no lessons from me! :) Any relation to poison sumac? Happy Ruby Tuesday!

MaryT,
NO relation to the poisonous type, which has WHITE berries. This is a wild staghorn sumac but some nurseries sell it for landscape purposes. ;-)

Very interesting shot. Is this a flower? I haven't seen one until today.

Mine is here. Good morning!

Jan said...

You just took this, in the winter? Wonderful.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Jan,
I took it about a week ago...when the sun was shining.

Sun? Did I say sun? What's THAT?

Rose said...

I tried to get a good picture of sumac but the lighting wasn't right...going to have to remember to try again next year. Yours is so good.

Robin said...

What a festive looking red. I don't think I've ever seen sumac berries before, though the spice often appears on food here it's color is a dull brick red by then.

Carletta said...

Lovely image!
A real 'pretty' here in the winter.

Walker said...

Beautiful plant, lovely.

judi said...

Wonderful, do they smell? I can't remember. Sure are beautiful and you captured them perfectly.

luna miranda said...

wow, that's a nice macro!

Ralph said...

Nice red berries, and I assume the sumac is not poisonous in the cold weather. Not like you start itching by merely looking at the berries. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Sioux said...

What a lovely ruby photo!

Lisa said...

Red in winter is a treasure to find. I like the photo very much.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Interesting shot. It's hard to give it perspective on size. I am guessing the blurred shapes in back are bare tree branches.

Natural Moments said...

I always liked the shape of these spikes, reaching up and disappearing into the sky above.

Felisol said...

I've never even heard of sumac berries.
They look quite unique. Must be beautiful inside in a vase?

That is a lovely splash of colour to see in the winter!

BJ Roan said...

It's hard to find color around here. This is a beautiful red.

Becky and Gary said...

We have LOTS of these, and they are all covered with snow. What a pretty red color. It brightens up the day.
Happy RT EG.

Tammie Lee said...

really lovely, I like how the back ground turned out, the colors really are great together.

Terri said...

That's stunning!

Catherine said...

You colored our Tuesday with it, no doubt, EG !
For me, it looks like a rustic plant. Nice to see it in macro !

Kostas said...

Excellent macro photo with a lot of beautiful chromatic nuances!

Oh! I have not seen such berries before. Something interesting! Thanks for sharing. :)

Fabulous macro shot. And I can see how they'd brighten up the landscape.

You followed the rules! Great macro shot. I forgot to do that.

Love the colours in the background! They really emphasize the redness of the berries!
