Get off your rear end and take pictures.

The fruit of the cactus and supposedly one of the world's super fruit -- loaded with antioxidants and other good things. However, it is also loaded with tiny spines that are most irritating when they get on your hands and will go through leather gloves so I just leave them on the cactus and admire them.

Nature never ceases to amaze. So much that we take for granted. Simple and nice.

I like the depth of field and the bright magenta ag. the softer greens. Nicely captured.

Odd and almost clumsy way to grow a fruit but beautifully captured

I like the pop of color on this. It adds a nice balance.

Well I've never tasted one of them, however they do look beautiful indeed.

i look back 10 years or so ...
OMG .. its been that long .. !! ..
when we were in the side challenges ..
the growth as photographers that i see in so many ppl here is just wonderful ..

and its funny .. but i look back on photos i took back then .. which i was pleased with .. and i'm almost mortified .. and think of removing them off the site .. i really hope that isnt happening for me too much now .. altho .. trouble is i wont know for a while .. ;)

but when i first saw this .. thats exactly what i thought .. about the growth as photographers ..
also that this is just marvellous .. the colours are jumping off the page .. those red cactus fruit things look 3D .. they are about to drop onto my tablet ..
what a wonderful image Germaine .. the greens and the red fruit popping out .. the background .. perfect dof .. excellent .. :)

i should proof read before i post .. eh .. !! .. ;)
