Beautiful, simple yet stunning. A great shot Christian, you've captured the white really well. Well done and thanks for posting.

tres belle photo TAZ !
techniquement rien a redire, les blanc ne sont pas du tout "cramer", le contraste avec l'ariere plan est bien.
j'ai le souvenir d'avoir deja manger ces toute petite fraise chez ma grand mere, il me semble qu'elles sont tres sucrées....
nice done Mr Christian ;)

Very nice image Christian,
Really good exposure and detail. Good colours and DOF is spot on.

Hi Christian,
This is such a pretty shot. The flower looks like it is 3D, popping out at me. Unfortunately, I have never had the chance to taste these wild strawberries, but my mother says they are very delicious, full of flavour :)) Thankyou for sharing this beauty!
