Have a good trip in your family, Ram. This is a lovely shot, one we could frame and put on the wall of the kitchen. It's funny because when I saw it, I could smell it even though you write they have a flat taste. I relaly like to see what we would normally not notice, among bushes or in dark places, like fungi. This certainly is a beautiful pictre with an efficient use of flash. Thank you and come back to TN!

Is a strawberry very similar to oe that grows in the wild here, but I don´t know if it´s native, despite of all is a rare species. You´ve done a nice berry macro, surprisingly looks like a bit the photo I was taken here!
Good voyage, bye

Hello Ram !
Just makes me want to eat it ! :-) When I was young we had them growing in our forests, too, but nowadays it is difficult to find them - I miss them ! :-) I is an excellent picture, full of appetizing details. It is a nice goodbye picture. I hope you'll have a lot of fun with your family and that everything is well for you and for them. And we'll wait (impatiently) for your return, because TN without you is just not the same.
Greetings from rainy France,

Very pleasant picture of this little wild strawberry. I like the special composition you have chosen. We also have wild strawberries, but they look slightly different from yours. I think I will post one in the future, just to compare. But I have to wait a few months!
I wish you a nice evening

Hmm, you show a picture that reminds me wonderful souvenirs of my childhood when we went to the forest with my father to gather wild strawberries. Their taste is so much better than the ones you buy in the supermarket. Moreover, the picture has a pronounced artistic effect.

Hi, dear Ram.
My best wishes to you. I hope all will be OK at you, your business and family.
I think this berry common for you but not for many TN members. And I am sure this picture also is not common. Its quality is exceptional. Great use of flash. Terrific sharpness of the fruit and leaves. Wonderful dark and nicely blurred BG. Perfect job. We are waiting for you here.

I would love to use flash like this. Very impressive exposure and details.

Oh -- this is Potentilla indica, I think. It grows in my area, though my guidebooks say it's native to India. It was probably brought in as an ornamental plant, and sure it is pretty! Its flowers are yellow, not white as in the strawberries grown for fruit.
Regardng the taste of these small strawberries, I agree with Ram in that it's flat.
Nice shot by the way -- I like the clever composition.
