[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Atropa belladonna
Very poisonous plant - sometimes a few berries (dark blue/black when ripe, here green) is enough to meet your god definitely.

Source of atropine.

Latin name 'belladonna' means 'beautiful lady': in past ages berries were used by women in cosmetics, to make up their lips dark blue and increase of pupil size (atropine) - you know, they used to faint a lot... :-)
