Nice shot, as always!
We have a lot of (wild) figs here, though our's have their "fingers" either wider open, or broader leaves. Most of the uncultivated trees don't give eadible fruit, and though I'm not sure about the truth in this story, locals in North Iran call a specific kind of fig Mad Fig, and they say that eating the fruit will drive you crazy...
Smiles and the best,
