Highbush Cranberries

A native shrub to most of Canada

Ripe, yes. But these berries will remain on the shrub throughout the winter. Birds don't usually eat them until late winter/early spring.

I am joining I Heart Macro HERE.

FYI: The November 1 theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Heights."

Love the bright red color! It must brighten up the woods around your home.

Jack said...

It is kind of the birds to leave these pretty berries alone, to decorate the woods.

Carletta said...

So, the birds save these for a delicious snack later on. Wish I had that much control over temptation. :)
Lovely shot!

makes me think of Halloween candy and how my kids used to eat the stuff they really liked first and save the stuff they weren't too thrilled with for later.

Sandra said...

so beautiful, wonder if they could come inside for decorations?

Lowell said...

They probably get sweeter over the winter, just like me! :)

Arija said...

Nice to know that these splendid berries will be left as late winter food for the birds.

Absolutely stunning photo. How wonderful that the berries hold through the winter. I imagine their glorious against white snow.

The berries ahve been amazing this year. Happy birds.

Pamela Gordon said...

So pretty. I usually cut some branches for my milk can arrangement if the birds don't get the berries first. The last two years the berries were gone in December.
