Hello Ishi,
I didn't know there was a wild species of Cotoneaster in Israel. We hav some growing wild in our woods but they are garden escapes!
This is a superb sharp close up of the berries and leaves of this species. The composition and natural colours are great with the hairs of both the leaves and berries well seen.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Ishi,

Good sharp and detailed image from this fruit.
Great pov and blurred bg.
Fine natural colours.
