[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am sorry that I don't remember the name of the trees. This photo is about the ball seeds, and the way they are positioned randomly between the branches.
When I was much younger I used to collect seed. I had more than 100 types, but I had to get rid of them when I saw a fat, ugly worm crawling out one of them.

If I am not mistaking, this is a syringa tree from South America. It is a beautiful dicidious tree with light soft, sall purple-blue flowers. It is poisonous and a declared weed in SA, however, I have seen grey louries eating these seeds. I like the overall impression created Yitzhak, but I think the focus are on the truncks, not on the berries.

Hey, good to see you here too Yitzhak. It seems a bit chaotic...as trees normally do when looking closely at them. This sure shows here :) The focus seem a bit off but i really like the way you capture the chaos.

Callie is spot-on. This is a syringa. (Seringboom) It is important to decide what is being photographed. (Trees, berries, or chaos as Zandra puts it.) Keep on shooting.
