Very interesting picture and note, Miq.
An educational one.
Good point of view and composition.
Nice work! Thanks.

Miq, if I recall correctly the noem-noem is a Bushman name. (Sorry not Bushman the Khoi-san) The effect is eye catching. How did you do it? This is a nice set of wild fruit.

A nice composition and a good shoot.

Very clever Miq. I like this picture. Very good colours and composition. Well done, Janice

The bright red fruit in the middle of the picture certainly makes it stand out. Nature normally uses red to ward off or as a danger signal although here it seems to be to attract.
