Flowers turning into salmonberries

It’s interesting to watch the plants in transition this spring. I haven’t had the time to do that for a while. In my life before, I spent each spring watching conifers ‘flower’ and produce cones. Out in the forest, you couldn’t help notice many of the other plants developing as well.

This photo is not the greatest, but it does illustrate part of the transition of salmonberry flowers to berries on the same twig. Apparently the shrubs can keep flowering for a long time, while the berries are ripening.

I’ll have to keep watching for a better shot. I’m learning to use my 105 mm lens, and depth of field seems to be a bit of a struggle for me right now. It’s coming though…
