[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rhamnus punctacta (Rhamnaceae) is a common small evergreen tree of the moist Horesh (Maquis) in our Mediterranean regions. The species’ name comes from the punctate ripe colorful fruit (about 3 mm in diameter) seen here. A green fruit can also be seen on the left. Also seen is one of the many thorns of the tree.

Hello Ishi,
A lovely macro showing these beautiful and interesting small berries captured in beautiful light. Excellent sharpness too and well framed. They remind me a bit of Gooseberries although I expect they're smaller.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
