The Fruits of My Labor

My favorite berry is the blackberry, and in making this post I learned that it is not “actually” a berry (in the “botanical” sense), but something called an aggregate fruit. Each little nub is called a drupelet. As you may see, my flash is powerfully reflected off each drupelet, perhaps a little too powerfully. It was hard to get the flash output down while avoiding too much underexposure. Another problem was attaining focus on all the drupelets in the foreground. All in all however, from start to finishing this post, it’s been a delicious experience. (An even closer view below.)
