Elderberry

The bright purple stems of elderberry fruit heads certainly catch the eye this time of year. The nutritious berries are sought out by many critters including birds, bears, and homo sapiens.

There’s a clutch of pagoda dogwood along Taft Road that have been beckoning my to take some photos. The dark purple-black berries on their bright red stems contrast so well with the green foliage. A shallow depth of field allows for some ethereal bokeh of the blue sky beyond.
