This is really pretty! I love the colors and the lighting and detail are very good. TFS
Clear image. Eye catching colors and depthness.
We recently came upon a flower in a hothouse with berries in these same impossible colours - somehow it makes them seem unreal or like candy.
Perfect focus, very enjoyable!

WOW amazing colours
any idea what these are called?
These are the most unusual berries that I have ever seen! They look like Easter eggs, or birds' eggs!
The light is lovely, bringing out their shiny texture and creating interesting shadows.
