[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Somewhere in the Balkan mountain (Stara planina) there is a sunny ridge near Baba peak where these ones are still riping in the end of September. And while most of the fruits are already picked either by wild animals or by people who later sell them on the market, these ones were still there - waiting for me!
I picked them up during the mountain trekking I made for three days - it was a part of the famous mountain route Kom peak - cape Emine. The whole route is about 750 km long, it takes about 20 days at average for the average trekker to reach from the beginning to the end. It's only within the Balkans and is a part of the E-3 Еuropean route which connects the Atlantic ocean with the Black sea. The starting point - Kom peak, is situated in northwestern Bulgaria, and Emine peak is the easternmost part of the mountain above sea level.

The photo has no additional adjustments apart from the resizing. Taken with the macro of my old DMC-LS1.

Hi Tsvetana

If the fruits would be well-focused, I'll be sure that this plant is a Vaccinium myrtillus. But without seing its flowers and fruit it is too difficult to guess which plant is.
