Hi Ferran!

Definitelly one of my favourite plants [although not for dinner ;-)]. Very good use of flash, nice composition, good details. Interesting note. In Polish it is called 'Wilcza jagoda' which means wolf's berry.

Bonita composición Ferran. El fondo está estupendo dándole el toque a las hojas y a los frutos para que destaquen.Perfecta nitidez.
Muchos saludos, JL.

Hi Ferran,
It seems that I missed your Belladonna. The fruit is shining like a dark sun and looks very inviting.
Best regards
